Giuseppe Verdi

La traviata - This season’s classic opera highlight

Love, passion, an overprotective father and a life cut short are the ingredients in La traviata, Verdi’s greatest romantic tragedy.

Rising star Emma Pearson sings the role of Violetta, a coveted courtesan trapped in a life of pleasure for payment. When she unexpectedly falls in love with Alfredo (Aldo di Toro) their brief affair soars, only to be torn apart and ultimately end in Violetta’s death. Sumptuous staging, twinkling chandeliers, champagne-fuelled parties and costumes that would make Dior envious bring the extravagant characters and setting of high society Paris to vivid life.

Kate Cherry’s acclaimed production brings together some of Australia’s finest international artists including celebrated baritone Jonathan Summers, with Maestro Johannes Fritzsch conducting the combined forces of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the Opera Queensland Chorus.

Boasting some of opera’s most adored arias and stirring choruses, La traviata, is this season’s classic opera highlight. Come in the mood for champagne, but bring tissues for the ending…

La traviata is limited to four performances only, so book early for the best seats in the house.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations

La traviata is a co-production between New Zealand Opera, State Opera of South Australia and Opera Queensland.
