About La Traviata
La traviata tells the famous story of how beautiful but fragile courtesan Violetta is coerced into sacrificing her one hope of personal happiness for the sake of her lover’s reputation.
A tragic and resonant tale of society and morality, it combines compelling characters with hugely powerful, moving and instantly recognisable melodies, making it one of the most emotionally engaging and popular operas of all time.
This new production of Verdi’s masterpiece by acclaimed theatre director Peter Konwitschny gets to the very heart of the opera’s themes of passionate love and tragic death with a modern and uncluttered staging, and a running time of under two hours.
Starring exciting young American soprano Corinne Winters in her European debut, rising young British lyric tenor Ben Johnson and internationally acclaimed baritone Anthony Michaels-Moore.
