Opera at the Mill: Verdi – La Traviata
24th March 2018 @ 6:45 pm - 10:30 pm
A great love – an even greater sacrifice.
The courtesan Violetta Valery’s one chance at true love vanishes in an act of pure selflessness. Based on Alexandre Dumas’ novel La Dame aux Camélias, Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most performed operas – for very good reason. Passion, love, sacrifice, pain and joy fill every note of Verdi’s work
Experience the powerful drama of opera up close in this semi-staged performance in a suggestive, unconventional and relaxed space. Immerse yourself in Violetta’s heart-breaking fate and don’t forget your handkerchiefs…
