Richard Eyre’s ever-popular production of La Traviata for the Royal Opera brings the elegant world of 19th-century Parisian society to life. Read More >

La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas, loved for its drama, its excitement and its famous music.

The social scandal, stormy love affair and doomed heroine of La Dame Aux Camélias inspired Verdi to music of matching passion and memorable melodies.

Richard Eyre’s ever-popular production of La Traviata for the Royal Opera brings the elegant world of 19th-century Parisian society to life. There is the glamour of an extravagant lifestyle made vivid by Bob Crowley’s sumptuous designs, but there are also the swiftly revealed dangers at the tragic heart of the drama.

The claustrophobic conventions of society, painful deception and true self-sacrifice are even more powerful and poignant when set to Verdi’s music. Such powerful emotions so beautifully portrayed have earned La Traviata its place as one of the greatest operas of all time.

La Traviata is performed in Italian with English surtitles.
