La traviata

5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)
Outside City Hall in The Scoop, The Merry Opera Company presents Verdi's tale of the tart with a heart. Set In the cultural melting-pot of East London's galleries, clubs and cafés, burlesque artiste Violetta is the reigning queen, adored by everyone from barristers to baristas. But she’s hiding a fearful secret. When she unexpectedly and unconditionally falls for young city trader Al, neither has any idea where it might lead –especially as Al harbours a secret, too. Kit Hesketh-Harvey directs his English translation; Stephen Hose oversees a small ensemble from the piano.

A beautifully sung, and acted, performance from an up for it cast of fresh new faces.
