Opera Brava, one of the UK’s leading touring opera companies, presents Verdi’s La Traviata in a production which brings out all the emotional colour in one of the most popular of all operas.
From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas.
Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s fantastic melodies include the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.
Christopher Lane’s production for Opera Brava brings out all the emotional colour, from the first discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.
