La traviata
Soho Theatre
Tue 5 Aug -- Sun 14 Sep

Following the success of La bohème and Don Giovanni, Olivier Award-winning company OperaUpClose and director/translator Robin Norton-Hale return to Soho Theatre with their new English 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, this production is set in the 1920s underworld of speakeasies and bootlegging and reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

With Verdi's much-loved melodies orchestrated for a trio of clarinet, cello and piano by composer Harry Blake, this La traviata will serenade you, seduce you, and break your heart.
