Details

Amongst the most popular of Verdi's operas, La traviata is the work of a master of the musical drama. Its perfumed arias and soaring choruses vividly depict the ravishingly decadent but glamorous world of Parisian high society as the background to a heart rending story of romantic happiness destroyed. Original book called La Dame aux Camelias. Set in the prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta's lover Alfredo a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the first world war, Violetta's protector ?the Baron' a gang boss, and Alfredo's father a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering fa?ade of parties. Featuring a stunning young cast whose acting abilities are more than a match for their vocal talents, and with Verdi's sumptuous melodies accompanied by a trio of clarinet, cello and piano, this production is bound to be every bit as entertaining and moving as La Boheme. Running time: 2hrs 15mins
