EXPERIENCE the tragic tale that gripped Paris this weekend as Verdi’s spectacular opera La Traviata comes to St David’s Hall this Sunday 8th March 7:30pm.
La Traviata tells the tale of consumptive courtesan Violetta and her doomed love for the aristocratic Alfredo. This semi-autobiographical story is based upon Alexandre Dumas’ novel which was partly inspired by his affair with Marie Duplessis, who died of tuberculosis.
Much of Verdi’s finest work appears in this lavish production too. The Brindisi remains the best known drinking song in opera, whilst Un Di Felice is a beautiful duet. Plus, Violetta’s haunting aria Addio Del Passato is guaranteed to toy with your emotions.
Starring opposite Alyona Kistenyova is Ruslan Zinevych, the international Ukrainian tenor who has even sang with Pavarotti. Elsewhere, Spanish Tenor Giorgio Meladze appears as Alfredo, whilst the supremely talented Maria Tonina stars as Violetta.
This tragic tale of searing passion featuring Verdi’s breathtaking music is not one to be missed amongst opera fans!
