Olivier Award-winning OperaUpClose return to the Belgrade with their new version of La Traviata, following the huge success of their first visit with La Bohème.

La Traviata is the story of Violetta, a so-called ‘fallen woman’ who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover’s family and future. Set in the prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta’s lover Alfredo a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the First World War, Violetta’s protector ‘the Baron’ a gang boss, and Alfredo’s father a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisyand heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

La Traviata has been thrilling audiences for generations. This new version features a stunning young cast whose acting abilities are more than a match for their vocal talents. With Verdi’s sumptuous melodies, accompanied by a trio of clarinet, cello and piano, this production will be every bit as entertaining and moving as La Bohème.

This new English version is directed by Robin Norton-Hale with the new orchestration by Harry Blake.

Running time: Act 1 – 1 hour 15mins, 20 minute interval, Act 2 – 50 mins
