La Traviata

Verdi's superb sparkling opera of passionate love, morality and mortality.

York Opera

Tuesday 13 June to Saturday 17 June 2017

York Opera presents in English, with orchestra, one of the world's most popular operas - Verdi's La Traviata. An opera packed with arias and choruses that you'll soon recognise, such as the famous 'Brindisi' drinking chorus.
The story follows fragile and life - loving courtesan Violetta, as she is forced to surrender her love for Alfredo, in order to protect his family's reputation. Will she ever become reunited with her lover again before her fatal illness claims her?

Libretto by F. M Piave

Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Translated by Thomas and Ruth Martin
