Opera: Passion, Power and Politics

Together the V&A and the Royal Opera House create a landmark exhibition presenting a vivid story of opera from its origins in late-Renaissance Italy through to the international explosion of opera in the 20th and 21st centuries

Visit Opera: Passion, Power and Politics at the V&A’s new Sainsbury Gallery and enjoy a two-course meal and a glass of wine at Le Caprice for £40.

The new purpose-built subterranean gallery is one of the largest temporary exhibition spaces in the UK. This inaugural exhibition will reveal how the creation of a new opera can reflect the social, political, artistic and economic conversations that define cities. Told through the lens of seven premieres in seven European cities, this immersive exhibition takes you on a journey through nearly 400 years, culminating in the international explosion of opera in the 20th and 21st centuries.
