Scottish Opera: La traviata

About Scottish Opera: La traviata

Passionate, flamboyant, gripping; Sir David McVicar’s La traviata is not to be missed. Set in the demi-monde of 1880s Paris, this stunning show is designed with sumptuous period style and gets right to the core of Violetta and Alfredo’s doomed love affair – finding a heartbreakingly human story in the midst of a hedonistic world where both the rich and the wretched have their fun. Verdi’s magnificent score sweeps the characters through their every shifting mood, brought to life by Russian-Dutch soprano Gulnara Shafigullina and Dutch tenor Peter Gijsbertsen.

Dates: Wed 15, Sun 19, Tue 21, Thu 23 & Sat 25 November.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Opera: La traviata are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
