Descriptions The ROH Live: La Traviata
Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London Live showing of Verdi’s Traviata with subsequent re-screenings Violetta, a Parisian courtesan suffering from tuberculosis, is throwing a party to celebrate her recovery. A young nobleman, Alfredo, plans to attend, and has long been in love with Violetta. Before long, Violetta has fallen for him as well, but Alfredo’s father disapproves of their relationship. He convinces Violetta to leave Alfredo for the sake of his family’s image, not realising how ill she really is. Richard Eyre’s production of ‘La Traviata’ immerses the audience in the indulgence of 19th Century Paris, a vivid setting for Verdi’s famous score.
