RICHARD  EYRE’S  BEAUTIFUL  PRODUCTION  PROVIDES  THE  PERFECT SETTING  FOR VERDI’S  OPERA  ABOUT  A  COURTESAN  WHO  SACRIFICES  ALL FOR  LOVE.

MUSIC, GIUSEPPE  VERDI, DIRECTOR, RICHARD  EYRE, CONDUCTOR, ANTONELLO MANACORDA

From  the  thrill  of  unexpected  romance  to a  heartbreaking  reconciliation that comes  too  late  – Verdi’s  La  Traviata  is  one  of  the most  popular  of all  operas. Alfredo (Charles Castronovo) falls in  love  in  with  the courtesan  Violetta (Ermonela Jaho) in glamorous  Paris  society,  but underneath  the  surface  run  darker undercurrents,  leading to  a  tragic  ending.  The opera’s  wealth  of melodies includes  the  famous Brindisi and  the  exuberant Sempre  libera’  –  both showing  the  lyricism  of Italian  opera  at its most immediately  appealing.  Georgio (Placido Domingo)

Richard  Eyre’s  production  for  The  Royal  Opera  brings  out  all  the emotional colour,  from  the giddy discovery  of  love,  through  painful confrontation  to  the inevitable  conclusion.  Lavish  period  sets and costumes  enhance  the reality  of  a moving  story  based  on  true  life.
