La traviata tells the moving story of how the beautiful but fragile courtesan Violetta is coerced into sacrificing her one hope of personal happiness for the sake of her lover's reputation.
A tragic and resonant tale of society and morality, Verdi's masterpiece combines compelling characters with hugely powerful, moving and instantly recognisable melodies, making it one of the most emotionally engaging and popular operas of all time. Peter Konwitschny's celebrated production returns to ENO, cutting to the very heart of the opera's themes of passionate love and tragic death with a modern and uncluttered staging, and a running time of less than two hours.
