About the Event

Verdi's La Traviata tells the captivating story of Violetta, a highly desired courtesan in Paris whose life takes an unforeseen turn after meeting the passionate Alfredo. This fresh and thought‐provoking production invites audiences to question who Violetta truly is beyond the glamorous facade.
Verdi's music for La Traviata is a thrilling and emotional journey, from the vivacious chorus of the famous 'Brindisi' to Violetta's soaring 'Sempre libera' and the poignant notes that conclude the opera.
Critically acclaimed as 'an absolute triumph,' this new production directed by Sarah Giles places Violetta's inner world at the forefront. It explores the heartache that hides behind the glamour, reminding us that it is just a heartbeat away.
After the performance, make your evening even more extraordinary with tickets to our exclusive Midnight Party. Held in the Northern Foyers of the Opera House, this event offers drinks, canapés, entertainment, and, of course, a prime view of Sydney's renowned NYE fireworks.
