Taliesin Broadcast - ROH: La traviata (As Live 12A)


Royal Opera House

La traviata

Opera in three acts

Music Giuseppe Verdi

Director Richard Eyre

Conductor Antonello Manacorda

Richard Eyre’s beautiful production provides the perfect setting for Verdi’s opera about a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.

From the thrill of unexpected romance to 
a heartbreaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls
in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading

to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi
and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at
its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera
brings out all the emotional colour, from
the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.
