Verdi’s La Traviata, based on Alexander Dumas fils’s play La Dame aux camélias, is one of Verdi’s most popular operas, combining drama, passion and memorable melodies.
Verdi’s tragic tale of a Parisian courtesan who sacrifices all for love is vividly presented in Richard Eyre’s production.
Alfredo and the courtesan Violetta fall passionately in love. But Violetta is seriously ill and Alfredo’s father disapproves of their relationship – can their love overcome such obstacles?
"Richard Eyre's production of Verdi's most popular opera was first seen at Covent Garden in 1994 and remain one of the most glorious productions in operatic repertoire"
-William Hartston Express
