La Traviata on Sydney Harbour
Fallen woman, courtesan, escort, high class call-girl – call her what you will, Violetta Valéry is one of those women who fathers warn their sons about. When the opera opens she is hosting a lavish party for her many admirers. One of them, Alfredo Germont, manages to catch her alone and confesses his love to her. She has heard such declarations many times before, but this young man intrigues her. But can their two very different lives be reconciled or is too much standing in the way of their love?
This unique production is the perfect in-cinema event for first-time opera-goers – and a must-see for the thousands of fans of this well-known title – who have never seen it performed quite like this before!
