We are looking forward to Pretty Yende performing on April 2, 5, 9, 11, 13 and 18, when she returns to the Royal Opera House as Violetta in Verdi’s classic opera, 'La traviata.'


This beloved production by Richard Eyre, which turns 28 this year, has become a mainstay at the Royal Opera House. Garnering great acclaim in its past iterations, the production has been described as “handsome” and “magnificent”.


Joining Ms. Yende on stage will be Stephen Costello as Alfredo, Dimitri Platanias as Giorgio Germont, Kseniia Nikolaieva as Annina, David Shipley as Doctor Grenvil, Angela Simkin as Flora, Germán E. Alcántara as Baron Douphol, Andrés Presno as Gastone, Jeremy White as Marquis D’Obigny under the baton of Giacomo Sagripanti.


The opera will be broadcast live in cinemas on April 13, with an encore screening taking place on April 17.


 

SYNOPSIS


Alfredo Germont and the courtesan Violetta Valéry fall in love at a party in Violetta's Paris salon. Alfredo is determined to cure Violetta of her tuberculosis, and the couple leave Paris and begin a contented life in the country. But Violetta's happiness is destroyed when Alfredo's father Giorgio Germont pays her a visit.


Violetta’s scandalous relationship with Alfredo is jeopardizing Giorgio Germont’s daughter’s engagement, and Germont persuades Violetta to leave his son. Heartbroken, Violetta promises not to tell Alfredo why. Alfredo is stunned when Violetta disappears, and decides she must have left him from self-interest. He confronts her at a Paris party and leaves her. Only when Violetta is dying does he learn the truth.
