Audiences will have the chance to watch operas including Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Alan Gilbert’s Dr. Atomic and Richard Strauss’s Salome.

Francis Lamb, general manager of the Solihull multiplex, said: “We are very excited to give our customers an experience they might not necessarily be able to enjoy otherwise.
