The Merchant Of Venice Tickets London

The Royal Opera House presents The Merchant Of Venice - André Tchaikowsky’s opera inspired by Shakespeare's classic tale which finally receives its London premiere of the Welsh National Opera’s production, directed by Keith Warner.

Bassanio wins the love of Portia – but Antonio’s ships have been reported as lost, and Shylock insists on claiming his penalty. In the resulting court hearing, the disguised Portia proves that it is impossible for Shylock to collect only his pound of flesh without also drawing blood, which was not stipulated in the original contract. The court forces Shylock in defeat to convert from to Christianity from Judaism.
