Giuseppe Verdi's masterpiece – compelling, blood-curdling and beautiful – is being performed for the first time on the unique, Bregenz lake stage. One of Verdi's most popular works, Rigoletto is an unforgettable tale of sacrifice and revenge; of a father's rage and a daughter's shame. It features several of opera's best-known arias-including Rigoletto's passionate denouncement "Cortigiani, Vil razza dannata," Gilda's dreamy "Caro nome" and the Duke's instantly recognisable "La donna è mobile." Directed and designed by Philip Stölzl, this timeless tragedy will delight audiences with a powerhouse combination of entertainment and emotional intensity from the spectacular shore of Lake Constance.

★★★★★ 'Witty, filthy and supreme.' Guardian See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC's hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast to the Regent Centre from London's West End. Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
