NT Live: The Beaux' Stratagem (12A)

The 'Beaux': Mr Aimwell and Mr Archer, two charming, dissolute young men who have blown their fortunes in giddy London. Shamed and debt-ridden, they flee to provincial Lichfield. Their 'Stratagem': to marry for money. Lodged at the local inn, posing as master and servant, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer and a strange, turbulent priest. But their greatest obstacle is love. When the Beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

Opera: Aida on Sydney Harbour (Not Yet Certified)

In Aida, Verdi masterfully puts the intimate affairs of the heart against the grandeur of the universe: where kingdoms rise and fall and the sands of time grind onwards. There could be no grander setting for such an opera than Sydney Harbour itself, awash with the light of the city and the Sydney Opera House silhouetted against the setting sun. But amid all of the spectacle, the famous 'Triumphal March', battle scenes and ancient temples, there's an emotional heart. Long after the fireworks have faded from the sky and Amneris sings her quiet, concluding prayer, you'll see the true mastery of this opera: it is at once an historic epic and an utterly relatable human tragedy. Sung in Italian with English Subtitles.

ROH Live Ballet: Viscera, Afternoon of a Faun, Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux, Carmen (12A)

Enjoy four short ballets in one evening with this quadruple programme from The Royal Ballet. Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramatic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann's thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera. Debussy's evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbin's Afternoon of a Faun which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other. George Balanchine's Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight-minute display of a ballet bravura and technique.
