From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Fans of Muriel Spark's 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' will know that Jean Brodie took her girls to see the Carla Rosa production of 'La Traviata' in Edinburgh.
Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s fantastic melodies include the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.
Christopher Lane’s production for Opera Brava will bring out all the emotional colour, from the first discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.
Christopher Lane has assisted on four major productions at The Royal opera House.
