Revival of the 2008 co-production with Welsh National Opera, Gran Teatre del Liceu & Teatro Real, Madrid.

Passionate, flamboyant, gripping: Sir David McVicar's La traviata has been in high demand worldwide since its Scottish Opera premiere in 2008. Set in the demi-monde of 1880s Paris, this stunning show is designed with sumptuous period style by Tanya McCallin. With his characteristic eye for detail, McVicar's production gets to the core of Violetta and Alfredo's doomed love affair - finding a heartbreakingly human story in the midst of a hedonistic world where both the rich and the wretched have their fun.

There are moments in many Traviatas when losing yourself in the music is the only option, because the plot doesn't seem worthy of attention. Not here: this is a storytelling that captivates just as much as the score. THE HERALD 2008

Verdi's magnificent score sweeps the characters through their every shifting mood - from the wildly dramatic to the most tender of moments. Russian-Dutch soprano Gulnara Shafigullina, recently Violetta at the Mariinsky, and Anush Hovhannisyan, representing Armenia at Cardiff Singer of the World 2017, head a cast of international talent also including multi-award-winning Dutch tenor Peter Gijsbertsen and British baritone Stephen Gadd (Le Villi 2017). David Parry (Carmen 2016) conducts.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
