The Royal Opera live from The Royal Opera House
In a glamorous and superficial society, a courtesan sacrifices all for love.
Nineteenth century Paris is a place of contrasts, glamour and superficiality, love and lust, life and death.
Courtesan Violetta sings some of Verdi’s most acclaimed arias including the joyous ‘Sempre libera’, in her poignant and passionate encounters with Alfredo and Germont. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera recently celebrated 25 years on the Royal Opera House stage and this year returns with acclaimed opera star Pretty Yende as Violetta.
Running time: 3 hours and 40 minutes, including two intervals.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
