Certificate

Duration
215 minutes

MUSIC: GIUSEPPE VERDI
DIRECTOR: RICHARD EYRE
CONDUCTOR: ANTONELLO MANACORDA

Richard Eyre's stunning production of Verdi's best-loved opera returns with star sopranos Ermonela Jaho and Angel Blue as Violetta; the casts also include Plácido Domingo and Charles Castronovo.

A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION WHICH PROVIDES THE PERFECT SETTING FOR VERDI’S OPERA ABOUT A COURTESAN WHO SACRIFICES ALL FOR LOVE.

From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking 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 wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.
