Their Love was a Scandal
If you’ve never thought of going to the opera, think again. Critics call La Traviata (The fallen woman) ‘an opera so famous that millions who’ve never seen a production can hum its tunes’. From Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini and Victorian Opera, comes the Australian premiere of this celebrated European production dubbed ‘the traviata of the mirrors’. Witness the life and death of Violetta Valery, a 24 hour party girl and ‘talk of the town’ who must choose between her desire for high society and her love for a younger man.
Famed for its giant hanging mirror, this unique version of Verdi’s much loved classic features Australian singing revelation Jessica Pratt, described by the New York Times as ‘a brilliant new presence’. Having recently appeared in the world renowned opera house La Scala, Milan, Jessica takes on the lead role of Violetta, which is considered the pinnacle of soprano repertoire.
For six performances only, La Traviata is a must-see event of 2014.
