Verdi’s best-loved work, is performed here by a star cast in a revival of Richard Eyre’s highly acclaimed 1994 production.

Alfredo and the courtesan Violetta fall passionately in love. But Violetta is seriously ill and Alfredo’s father disapproves of their relationship – can their love overcome such obstacles?

Music Director Antonio Pappano conducts La Traviata and American soprano Renée Fleming returns to Covent Garden to sing Violetta for the first time with The Royal Opera. 

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.

Sometimes the first bar of music will tell you what kind of evening is in prospect. And so it was here with Antonio Pappano, in his first Traviata for the Royal Opera

Antonio Pappano takes charge of this revival, searching out the meaning of Verdi's score in a supple, sentient reading that sweeps you along. 

Guardian

Graced by Bob Crowley’s amazing oversized set design, Eyre’s direction delivers a well-rounded production of Verdi’s immortal classic. 

Daily Express

The Maltese tenor’s beautifully rounded voice oozes old-school class — he’s shiveringly good.
