Broken promises, broken hearts, lowlife and life beyond death
This thrilling double bill of Delius and Puccini contrasts two surprise reunions between old flames. One leads to a crime of passion, the other to supernatural revenge. Delius explores a seedy corner of Paris and verismo extremes in Margot la Rouge, while the Gothic romance of Le Villi is given soaring expression by Puccini.
