Passion and Heartbreak

One of the great love stories of opera is reset to 1920’s Paris.

In this classic tragedy of selfless devotion and ultimate sacrifice, the wealthy Alfredo and the ill-fated heroine, Violetta find true love, only to be separated by family, society and finally, death.

Verdi's original brilliant, romantic music is brimming over with memorable melodies that will have you singing all the way home!
