BP Big Screen 'La traviata'


Tuesday 4 July 2017

6.30pm 10.30pm approximately - see details below

Duthie Park, Polmuir Road, Aberdeen, AB11 7WA



Enjoy a fantastic opportunity to introduce children to opera without the formality and cost of a trip to the theatre.

Join us for free opera on the big screen at Duthie Park broadcast live via satellite
from the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden. Suitable for families but
please be aware that the opera will be sung in Italian with English subtitles.

La Traviata is Giuseppe Verdi's tragic tale of love and loss. 'A toast to the pleasures
of life!' so sings Violetta, her new admirer Alfredo and her party guests in the
opening scene. But beneath the surface glamour of Violetta's Parisian life run
darker undercurrents: her doomed love for Alfredo and the tensions the lovers
encounter when they break society's conventions.

Bring a picnic, picnic rug or deck chairs, make yourself comfortable and enjoy the
night. Glassware, cans, barbecues or naked flames are not allowed. A selection of
hot and cold soft drinks will be available to purchase.

Entry to the Big Screen is via Polmuir Road or Riverside Drive. Parking is limited to
the Riverside Drive car park so wherever possible please use public transport.
