La Traviata


La Traviata is one of the most popular of all Operas. It is the story of the French courtesan Violetta who, suffering from consumption, finds the love of a good man, Alfredo, and through love she finds respite from her condition. But after a while she is forced to reject Alfredo by his father.

By the time the father has relented and Alfredo discovered what had happened, Violetta is on her death bed. She dies in his arms.

In a radical departure from tradition, Surrey Opera will present the opera in its original Italian. It will be conducted by the artistic director, Jonathan Butcher and directed by Matthew Hiscock.
