Three major Art Funded paintings by Renaissance master Titian sit at the heart of a grand collaboration between the National Gallery and the Royal Opera House.

Three of Titian's celebrated paintings based on scenes from Ovid's Metamorphoses - Diana and Actaeon, The Death of Actaeon and Diana and Callisto - form the core of the project. These will be displayed alongside designs by Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger for a new, Titian inspired production by the Royal Ballet. An evening of three new works, with scores by Jonathan Dove, Nico Muhly and Mark-Anthony Turnage will run from 14"20 July and be broadcast on the BP Summer Big Screens across the UK.

The National Gallery will also run a new poetry project, commissioning poets from Carol Ann Duffy to Simon Armitage to write new work inspired by the Diana series to be published in the accompanying catalogue.
