Synopsis

La traviata
Verdi

Alfredo, has fallen head over heels in love with the courtesan Violetta, but his father Germont disapproves of the fallen woman.  Penniless and fearing she will soon die, Violetta agrees to leave Alfredo believing it is in his best interest. It is only when Germont hears that she is on her deathbed that he realises the error of his ways, and confesses all to Alfredo.  But is it too late?

The conflict of duty and thwarted love has made La traviata a favourite with opera audiences across the world. This classic production with sumptuous mid 19th century costumes features some of Verdi’s most evocative music, including the Brindisi (the drinking song) - one of the best known melodies in opera.

Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
