RICHARD EYRE’S BEAUTIFUL

PRODUCTION PROVIDES THE PERFECT

SETTING FOR VERDI’S OPERA ABOUT

A COURTESAN WHO SACRIFICES ALL

FOR LOVE.


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 falls

in love in with the courtesan Violetta 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. 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.
