Details

Join us in Covent Garden for a LIVE screening of Richard Eyre’s beautiful production of Verdi's La Traviata.

Live Screenings are a wonderful way to experience the Opera at a more reasonable price. The best professionals capture the action in Covent Garden's Royal Opera House and this is transmitted live to a cinema screen; the excellent camera work at the ROH and the enveloping sound system in the movie theatre insure that you get the full experience of the drama and music with the best view.

The Story of La Traviata:
Verdi's timeless opera of a courtesan who sacrifices all for love.
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.

Tickets are £26 (this includes a £3 donation to Central London Humanists). Please sign up in the next two weeks.
