Opera Up Close: La Traviata

Opera Up Close goes again with a new adaptation at the King's Head, this time La Traviata. The libretto is in English and the classic story is now set in the prohibition era. If you want to see Opera really close in a little pub theatre, come and join us. Here the write-up from the website:" Olivier Award-winning company OperaUpClose return with their new version of La Traviata. The story of Violetta, a so-called ‘fallen woman’ who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover’s family and future, La Traviata has been thrilling audiences for generations.
Set in the prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta’s lover Alfredo a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the first world war, Violetta’s protector ‘the Baron’ a gang boss, and Alfredo’s father a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering façade of parties.

Featuring a stunning young cast whose acting abilities are more than a match for their vocal talents, and with Verdi’s sumptuous melodies accompanied by a trio of clarinet, cello and piano, this production is bound to be every bit as entertaining and moving as La Bohème."
Tickets are 22.50 and can be bought here:
Please only RSPV if you have a ticket. I have D12.
I will be in the pub from 6:30 and will send my number to you closer to the date.

    Looking forward to meeting you. Does it matter if a very few people are interested? Are we going to be notified if it gets cancelled?

    Kind regards

      Don't worry, it is a tiny theatre - only with the numbers of our group it would be half full. So I might be seeing you on the 5th?

    Mira. It won't get cancelled. It's the same as any performance. They would perform even if only one person was in the audience. They don't get paid much, they do it for the love of performing. I've been lots of times and its always interesting. Great music in La Traviata too including the drinking song!
