Party scenes and moments of aching tenderness collide, as Verdi's iconic romance is lovingly recreated in a brand-new production directed by Australian Sarah Giles.
This season is subject to COVID-19 regulations.
About the show
One of the greatest romances of all time sees the courtesan Violetta and the aristocratic Alfredo fall into a love that destroys them both. Set against the limits of society’s expectations, and driven by the demands of Alfredo’s father, she makes a decision to save him and sacrifice her love, and in doing so, pays the ultimate price.
Party scenes and virtuosic singing contrast with moments of aching tenderness, constantly moving the action forward with endless melodic invention. Whether you’re a first timer or seasoned opera lover, La traviata never disappoints, reminding us that great storytelling with great music is timeless.
Verdi's masterpiece is lovingly recreated in a brand-new production directed by Australian Sarah Giles, featuring an extraordinary cast of singers with Paul O’Neill, and introducing Samantha Clarke in her role debut as Violetta.
