Life reimagined is the title of The Royal Opera House's autumn season. There is a large selection of ballets and operatic performances, from original shows to new interpretations of classics. The most exciting part of the season is Deloitte Myth, which runs until the 28th September. The festival explores mythical stories such as Prometheus and Leda and the Swan. It will include dance, visual art, film, music, and family fun activities.

The first ballet to look forward to is Manon. Running from the 26th September - 1st November, it is a new production by Kenneth Macmillan and set in the eighteenth century France. Lescaut puts his sister, Manon, up for auction, but when she falls in love with Des Grieux they elope to Paris. Not long, afterward, however, when she is offered a life of luxury as a mistress, it is something Manon can't resist.

Going back to the classics, Carlos Acosta's Don Quixote recaptures the humour of the story of a Romantic old knight trying to live out dreams of chivalrous adventures. Meanwhile, Christopher Wheeldon will take you on a magical adventure down the rabbit hole in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Moving on to the operas, you'll find a new production by composer, Phillip Glass, who has adapted Franz Kafka's novel The Trial, for stage. Also based on a novel is Giuseppe Verdi, Rigoletto from 1885, and was inspired by Victor Hugo's Le Roi s'amuse. Tickets start from as little as 5 in the amphitheatre to 97 in the Orchestra stalls.
