Description

Six sopranos take the role of Violetta this Season in two runs of Richard Eyre’s time-honoured production of Verdi’s La traviata. Verdi’s beautiful score contains some of his most inspired arias and duets, including Violetta’s joyous ‘Sempre libera’, and her poignant and passionate encounters with Alfredo and Germont. The superficial glamour of 19th-century Paris contrasts with scenes of great intimacy, culminating in the memorable, heart-breaking final act.

The Royal Opera welcomes Lisette Oropesa, Kristina Mkhitaryan, and Anush Hovhannisyan in the Autumn and Pretty Yende, Angel Blue and Hrachuhí Bassénz in the Spring to sing the favourite role of star sopranos in the most performed opera in the world.
