La Traviata

Monday October 8 at 9.30pm AEDT – Ad Free • Channel Premiere • Streaming On Demand

Renee Fleming as the ill-fated courtesan Violetta, leads The Royal Opera’s stellar cast opposite Joseph Calleja as Alfredo, with Thomas Hampson as his unyielding father. Richard Eyre‘s classic production brings one of Verdi‘s best-loved works vividly to life, with stage designs that evoke the pleasure-seeking whirl of Parisian society – the glamorous setting for the doomed love of Alfredo and Violetta. Antonio Pappano draws from Verdi’s score the full force of dramatic and melodic intensity that have made it one of the most enduring works of all opera.
