La Traviata – OperaUpClose

  • Show Information

New orchestration for piano, clarinet and cello by Harry Blake
New English version by Robin Norton-Hale

Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose present their new version of La Traviata. The story of Violetta, a so-called ‘fallen woman’ who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover’s family and future, La Traviata has been thrilling audiences for generations.

Set in Atlantic City, USA, in the 1920s prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta’s lover Alfredo a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the first world war, Violetta’s protector ‘the Baron’ a gang boss, and Alfredo’s father a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

La Traviata is a co-production between OperaUpClose, Malmo Opera House and The Belgrade Theatre Coventry.
