La Traviata (ROH Encore)

RICHARD  EYRE’S  BEAUTIFUL  PRODUCTION  PROVIDES  THE  PERFECT  SETTING  FOR  VERDI’S  OPERA  ABOUT  A  COURTESAN  WHO  SACRIFICES  ALL  FOR  LOVE.

From  the  thrill  of  unexpected  romance  to  a  heartbreaking  reconciliation  that  comes  too  late  –  Verdi’s  La  traviata is  one  of  the  most  popular  of  all  operas.  Alfredo  falls  in  love  in  with  the  courtesan  Violetta  in  glamorous  Paris  society,  but  underneath  the  surface  run  darker  undercurrents,  leading  to  a  tragic  ending.  The  opera’s  wealth  of  melodies  includes  the  famous  Brindisi  and  the  exuberant  ‘Sempre  libera’  –  both  showing  the  lyricism  of  Italian  opera  at  its  most  immediately  appealing.  Richard  Eyre’s  production  for  The  Royal  Opera  brings  out  all  the  emotional  colour,  from  the  giddy  discovery  of  love,  through  painful  confrontation  to  the  inevitable  conclusion.  Lavish  period  sets  and  costumes  enhance  the  reality  of  a  moving  story  based  on  true  life
