La traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont.


Violetta turns her back on a life of glamour, style and standing for the man she loves. But upper-class fashionable society, feeling itself spurned, decides it’s not a suitable match. Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. His father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness. Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.


Richard Farnes returns to ENO to conduct Verdi‘s masterpiece which contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments. Singing Violetta is outstanding soprano, Nicole Chevalier. She is joined by Jose Simerilla Romero as Alfredo and Roland Wood as Giorgio Germont and ENO Harewood Artists, Zwakele Tshabalala as Gastone and Amy Holyland as Flora.

    I took my best friend to see the show. We did enjoy the music and singing. Unfortunately we didn’t enjoyed the stage presentation ,so simple (only curtains and the chair)

    Exceptional atmosphere created with understated set. The curtains becoming part of the story is just an example. Outstanding leading lady whose cascading notes filled the Coliseum. Fantastic musicians faultlessly performed.
