The Minotaur plays at Royal Opera House
Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9DD
Seating chart & directions
Harrison Birtwistle's reworking of an ancient myth had its premiere at the Royal Opera House in 2008. The opera's dark beauty shows one of our leading composers at the height of his powers.
The Minotaur – half-bull, half-man – has been imprisoned in a labyrinth on the island of Crete. Young men and women are sacrificed to him each year to repay an old debt. Can Theseus end this bloodshed?
Scheduled for January 2013.
