La Traviata

Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra starring the International sopranos Maria Tonina* and Alyona Kistenyova* in the love story that gripped Paris! La Traviata coming to the Alive Corn Exchange on Sunday 4th March.

A tragic tale of searing passion and memorable music, La Traviata is Verdi’s outstanding interpretation of one of the most popular love stories of the 19th century, La Dame aux Camelias. Based on a true story, it tells of the passionate loves and life of the consumptive courtesan, Violetta. There are many echoes of Verdi’s own life in Traviata and he threw himself into the music. The highlights include the Brindisi, the best known drinking song in opera, the duet Un Di Felice and Violetta’s haunting aria Addio Del Passato.

This magnificent production boasts sumptuous sets and costumes, and will be sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Ellen Kent’s La Traviata will be at the Alive Corn Exchange in Kings Lynn, on Sunday 4th March, 7.30pm. For more information or to book visit
