Experience such wonderful operas like La Traviata!
La Traviata' is a three‐act opera by Verdi based on Alexandre Dumas' novel 'The Lady with the Camellias' (1852). An opera about “a lady of pleasure” was shocking in the 1850’s, and the opera initailly failed, but went on to become one of the most frequently staged operas in the world. The main character is the courtesan Violetta, and the story traces her love affair with the young Alfredo Germont.
Or hear the wonderful sounds of La Boheme.
Puccini’s opera 'La Boheme' is based on Henri Murger's novel 'Scenes de la Vie de Boheme' (‘Scenes of Bohemian Life’). The plot explores the lives and loves of a group of young bohemians living in Paris in the 1840’s. Its triumphant premiere at Turin’s Teatro Regio in 1896 heralded the arrival of a now indispensable part of the Italian operatic repertoire.
This is the perfect event to get you acquainted with opera music and some of the world's most talented composers!
