*On the advice of his doctor Andrés Orozco-Estrada has reluctantly had to withdraw from La Traviata.
Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she’s not the marrying kind – at least not until now. However, their dreams of domestic bliss are threatened by both a merciless society that condemns Violetta’s racy past and an equally merciless disease.
There’s rarely a dry eye in the house when this poignant tale unfolds through Verdi’s robust, tuneful, full-hearted and full-throated score, laced throughout with melodies as familiar as the story.
The visual beauty of Tom Cairns’s opulent production aptly echoes the irresistible allure of this beloved opera.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
