Love me Alfredo, as I love you

Why See Metropolitan Opera - La Traviata?

Classical & Opera

Perhaps he is the one

Verdi's heartbreaking classic gets a brand new staging for the Met's 2018/19 season courtesy of Michael Mayer. Back to the 18th Century after 2017's 1950's setting, the sweeping tale of love set against the backdrop of a decadent Paris will play out against a stunning set that changes with the season, illustrating the fleeting nature of Violetta and Alfredo's doomed, but exquisitely beautiful romance.

What is the story of La Traviata

As one of the most beautiful courtesans of Paris, the alluring Violetta has many admirers but has let none of these wealthy suitors near her heart, preferring their generosity with their wallets to their baser attentions. It is in this world she meets Alfredo, a handsome yet penniless member of the bourgeois who wins her love and whisks her away to a countryside idyll in the hope of escaping her past life. Can their passion survive the reality of poverty, reputation and illness, or will everything they have fought to flee overwhelm the strongest emotion of them all?
