Richard Eyre’s production of Verdi’s classic and most romantic opera La Traviata will return to the Royal Opera House from the 16th January to the 19th March 2016.
This is the 13th time that Eyre’s production has been revived since its premiere in 1994.
Based on Alexandre Dumas fils play and novel La Dame aux camélias, which was in turn based on the life and tragic death of Parisian courtesan Marie Duplessis.
It is one of Verdi’s most popular and loved operas, that tells the story of a courtesan who sacrifices her one chance of true love and is now once again brought to life again at the Royal Opera House.
The opera is a combination of a powerful love story, complex but believable characters and of course stunning arias, duets and choruses.
Richard Eyre’s production brings the 19th century paris to life and contains costume and set designs by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Jean Kalman and movement by Jane Gibson.
Yves Abel, Nicola Luisotti and Richard Hetherington conduct a star cast with Venera Gimadieva, Maria Agresta and Nicole Cabell as Violetta, Saimir Pirgu, Rolando Villaz6n and Ho-Yoon Chung as Alfredo Germont and Luca Salsi, Quinn Kelsey and Tassis Christoyannis as Giorgio Germont. Jette Parker Young Artists Yuriy Yurchuk, James Platt and Samuel Sakker appear in smaller roles alongside Andrea Hill, Sarah Castle, Sarah Pring, Gaynor Keeble and former Jette Parker Young Artist (2013—15) Luis Gomes.
