La traviata

Violetta surrenders her place in society to pursue a dream of love. But the visit of a stranger threatens to destroy everything.

16 Mar - 13 Apr 2018

La traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.

In his debut production as ENO Artistic Director, Daniel Kramer directs a production which contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments. Verdi’s masterpiece features one of the most iconic, romantic and tragic scores of all time.

Singing Violetta is outstanding young soprano Claudia Boyle. She is joined by rising tenor Lukhanyo Moyake as Alfredo, in his UK debut. Conductor Leo McFall makes his ENO debut in a production that showcases the award-winning ENO Chorus and Orchestra.
