Villa In Canto
Sunday 12th June 2016
Tickets: £20 and £16 for concessions
La Traviata (the fallen woman) tells the moving story of how a beautiful but doomed courtesan, Violetta, in the Paris of 1850 finds true love but then has to sacrifice her real happiness for the sake of her lover’s reputation. This intimate opera was considered very risqué at the time but, through its instantly recognisable arias and the tense emotionality of the music, has continued to be one of the most frequently performed operas through to today.
The case will be Violeta Valery – Hiroko Morita; Alfredo Germont – Renato Cordeiro; Giorgio Germont – Ferruccio Finetti.
Musical Director: Riccardo Serenelli
