Looking to breathe a little sparkle into your spring calendar? It’s time to dust off your finery and raise your glass to a spectacular evening – the Opera awaits.
This spring, La Traviata is bringing old Parisian glitz and glamour to Sydney Opera House in a show that will have your eyes twinkling. Prepare to be entertained, titillated and tearful throughout the tragic three-act tale of Violetta Valéry, the famous young courtesan who attempts to break free from her former life.
Whether you’re a seasoned opera-goer or you’re making your debut, La Traviata is an evening of pomp and passion that you’ll never forget.
Set in early 19th century Paris, his evening of escapism is the perfect antidote to the mundane everyday. But be aware, La Traviata is only showing until November 4, and it’s sure to sell out fast!
Take a step into a high-society soirée held in Violetta’s home, the scene of her first meeting with the dashing Alfredo Germont. She might be a vision in velvet sipping champagne from the finest crystal, but for Alfredo it’s Violetta’s sharp intelligence that makes her girlfriend material.
The two retreat to the country to pursue a better future. However, it seems she is unable to shake off the burden of her past as easily as she’d hoped.
Met with a devastating predicament and held in a bind by her love for Alfredo and her own morality, Violetta is forced to make an impossible decision.
What holds the fate of Alfredo and Violetta? Will their love stand strong, or will the trials and tribulations of their romance prove too difficult to bear…
Witness the tale unfold in a stunning show, made unforgettable with lavish sets, exquisite costumes and a stunning score. And come prepared to party like it’s Paris in the 1900s – but be sure to bring your tissues, this is a tear-jerking love story of epic proportions!
