La traviata

La traviata


Tues 13 & Fri 16 Verdi’s LA TRAVIATA 7.15pm (Sung in Italian with English supertitles*)

A tale of two young lovers separated by the cruelty of society and fate, La traviata is one of opera’s most powerful and enduring romances. When Alfredo, an innocent young man from the country, meets charismatic Parisian courtesan Violetta, he falls deeply and immediately in love. But can Violetta ever escape her dark past and find a new beginning with him? And will his family ever consent to their relationship?

Set to some of opera’s most memorable tunes, from rousing drinking songs to passionate love-duets, Verdi’s score amplifies a familiar story, transforming it into something profoundly moving, whether you’re seeing it for the first or the fiftieth time.

Wed 14 & Sat 17 Massenet’s CENDRILLON (Cinderella) 7.15pm (Sung in French with English supertitles*)

Sweet-natured Cendrillon lives the life of a servant at the home of her downtrodden father and cruel stepmother, teased and tormented by her two foolish stepsisters. Will she make it to the ball to meet the handsome Prince? With a little help from her fairy-godmother she just might.

A glittering comic opera celebrating the power of fantasy, Cendrillon is Jules Massenet’s musical fairytale. An enchanting retelling of the familiar Cinderella story, it balances the exquisite beauty of its romantic and fantasy scenes with deft, witty portraits of Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters. The most successful French opera composer of the turn of the century, Massenet’s blend of colourful characters, generous melodies and sumptuous orchestral textures is both heady and bewitching.
