La traviata

 

'A toast to the pleasures of life!' sings Violetta, her new admirer Alfredo and her party guests in the opening scene of Giuseppe Verdi's La traviata – the production for this year's BP Big Screens Opera in the Duthie Park.

La traviata, inspired by Alexandre Dumas fils's play La Dame aux camélias– itself based on the true story of the courtesan Marie Duplessis – is one of the most popular operas, combining drama, profound emotion and wonderful melody.La_Traviata_1_email_large
