La traviata

Giuseppe Verdi

29 September - 17 November 2022

Dates & venues

Violetta is a courtesan who is enjoying the Parisian high-life when, to her surprise, she falls in love. But she cannot escape the consequences of her past life, and circumstances conspire to force her to sacrifice what may be her only chance of real love.

Verdi poured some of his most heartfelt music into this intimate story of family tensions, blighted love and a society rotten with hypocrisy. The result is one of opera’s most profoundly moving masterpieces, both angry and tender.

Director Alessandro Talevi and designer Madeleine Boyd (The Turn of the Screw, Don Giovanni) set this riveting production of La traviata in Belle Époque Paris.

“As performances go, this one takes some beating.”
★★★★ — The Guardian (2014)

“…brilliantly staged… Talevi’s direction makes the action fly.”
★★★★ — The Arts Desk (2014)
