In the opera world, Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most famous of all time. But, if you’re new to opera, you’re probably wondering what the appeal is. Hair-raising music aside, this opera follows a narrative that we, as an audience, never seem to tire of – a passionate love, fated to end in tragedy. From The Notebook to The Titanic, it’s everywhere. In fact, La traviatais a direct mirror of Moulin Rouge, telling the tale of a glamorous courtesan in Paris who falls for a penniless artist. If you’ve seen Moulin Rouge, then you’ll probably have guessed how this one ends, but why not experience our five-star production and find out for yourself.
