La Traviata is a tragic tale of searing passion and memorable music.

It is Verdi's outstanding interpretation of one of the most popular love stories of the 19th century, La Dame aux Camellias. There are many echoes of Verdi's own life in La Traviata and he threw himself into the music.

This spectacular traditionally staged production with sumptuous sets and costumes is sung in Italian with English surtitles.
