Opera North: La Traviata

Verdi's tragic drama about a courtesan in Paris forced to sacrifice love when she cannot escape the consequences of her past

This is Opera North’s first new production of the world’s most popular opera in 15 years, so don’t expect there to be a dry eye in the house when some of the most instantly recognisable arias in existence pierce straight to the heart.

Verdi's mastepiece, in which an experienced courtesan to the rich suddenly and unexpectedly falls in love and sees the true shallowness of her existence, is one that strikes as powerful a chord today as it always has. 

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
