National Theatre Live: Angels In America Part One – Millennium Approaches. Thursday July 20 at 7pm
America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the Aids crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Part 1 opens at the end of October 1985. Andrew Garfield plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough, Nathan Lane, James McArdle and Russell Tovey.

 Angels In America Part Two – Perestroika.  Thursday July 27 at 7pm

 Yerma, Thursday August 31 at 7pm
The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Olivier and Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s powerful masterpiece. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

Live: André Rieu: 2017 Maastricht concert, Sunday July 23 at 3pm
Known to millions as The King of Waltz, André Rieu is one of the world’s most popular music artists. This year is a very special year because it is exactly 30 years since André started his Johann Strauss Orchestra in his Dutch home town of Maastricht. Set against the stunning medieval backdrop of the town square, the spectacular Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, along with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and special guests.

Royal Shakespeare Company Live: Titus Andronicus [12A] approx 180 mins including interval. Wednesday August 9 at 7pm
The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play. Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society. Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society. David Troughton takes the title role in a production by Blanche McIntyre.

La Clemenza Di Tito. LIVE from Glyndebourne, Thursday August 3, at 6pm
Spurned by Tito, Vitellia seeks revenge. Besotted Sesto agrees to avenge her as a token of his love, but all does not go to plan. Mozart’s opera, loosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, delivers all of the sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity we expect of him. Australian tenor Steve Davislim makes his Glyndebourne debut as Tito, with Alice Coote as Vitellia and Kate Lindsey as Sesto.

Royal Opera House and Glyndebourne ticket prices: Adults £20, members and concessions £18, children 16 and under £12.50
