Violetta, the beautiful courtesan, always thought she would never fall in love. Then she met Alfredo.
Opera Australia’s celebrated version of Verdi’s La traviata, set in 1890s Paris, is the ultimate night at the opera. There are lovingly detailed period costumes, lavish interiors, grand ensemble scenes. Above all, there is Verdi’s music.
Anyone who has ever been in love can identify with Alfredo. Anyone who has ever had a broken heart feels Violetta’s pain. And anyone who sees this production cannot fail to be entranced by its beauty.
Opera Australia is delighted to introduce Russian soprano Elvira Fatykhova and Aldo Di Toro making their Melbourne debuts in the roles of Violetta and Alfredo.
