Richard Eyre’s time-honoured production of Verdi’s most popular opera. The beautiful score contains some of Verdi’s most inspired arias and duets, including Violetta’s joyous ‘Sempre libera’, and her poignant and passionate encounters with Alfredo and Germont. The superficial glamour of 19th-century Paris contrasts with scenes of great intimacy, culminating in the memorable, heart-breaking final act.
Alfredo Germont and the courtesan Violetta Valéry fall in love at a party in Violetta’s Paris salon. Alfredo is determined to cure Violetta of her tuberculosis, and the couple leave Paris and begin a contented life in the country. But Violetta’s happiness is destroyed when Alfredo’s father Giorgio Germont pays her a visit.
