La traviata

La traviata
New Production, Sung in English. A fresh look at Verdi’s deeply moving and ever-popular tale of a love denied, this new production also celebrates the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s birth. Director Annilese Miskimmon (newly-appointed Artistic Director of Danish National Opera) gets right to the heart of the story in a production that centres on the turbulent relationships at its core. Violetta, a famed escort, leads a seemingly charmed existence amidst the cream of Paris society. But in fragile health, she is tired of living an empty life, and when Alfredo introduces himself she finally sees a way out of her tawdry lifestyle. Deeply in love, all is blissful contentment until some home truths convince her to leave Alfredo and head back into the arms of another . . . The sheer concentration of drama makes La traviata the perfect piece to present in more intimate settings, and Verdi’s music only heightens the spectacle. It encompasses an astonishing range of moods and emotions, from Alfredo’s fresh-faced charms to Violetta’s vivid effervescence, which is perfectly captured in Sempre libera, a vocal showpiece to rival any other.
