Mar 17
The Royal Opera: La Traviata

Live On Screen, direct from the London Stage: Verdi’s classic opera of tragic love

Richard Eyre’s beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Verdi’s opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.

It features Royal Opera favorite Plácido Domingo.

The opera tells the story of the Parisian courtesan Violetta (Ermonela Jaho) and her tragic love affair with Alfredo Germont (Charles Castronovo). Their romantic idyll in the countryside ends abruptly when Alfredo’s father Giorgio (Domingo), shocked by their liaison, persuades Violetta to leave Alfredo for the good of his family – even though he knows Violetta is seriously ill.

The opera contains some of Verdi’s most inspired arias including Violetta’s ‘Sempre libera’ and ‘Addio del passato’. Antonello Manacorda makes his Royal Opera debut as conductor.
