The ballrooms and bedrooms of high society are a dizzying whirl in the life of Violetta, the most glamorous courtesan in all of Paris.
Living life on her own terms, to her surprise she falls in love with the naïve young Alfredo. But this intoxicating romance takes a devastating turn when her past life catches up with her, and she’s forced to sacrifice what may be her only chance of real love.

This riveting tale of scandal, forbidden relationships and damaged reputations bursts with some of the most memorable melodies in opera, including ‘Sempre libera’ and the iconic drinking song ‘Brindisi’.

Director Alessandro Talevi and designer Madeleine Boyd return, bringing to life this riveting production of one of the most popular operas of all time.

There is a free pre-show talk ahead of this performance on Tue 1, Wed 2 and Thu 3 Nov with members of the company. Tickets are free but must be pre-booked.
