From the same brilliant creative team who gave you last year’s Madama Butterfly, this is opera at its most sumptuous and beautiful.

Verdi’s heartbreaking tale sees Violetta forced to sacrifice her happiness and abandon Alfredo, the only man she has truly loved, to save his family from ruin.

Hailed as ‘not to be missed,’ by the New Zealand Herald, this lavish production of La traviata is a stunning feast for the eyes and the ears.

New Zealand soprano Madeleine Pierard is our beautiful but fragile courtesan Violetta with Enea Scala as her love, Alfredo and Phillip Rhodes as his father, Giorgio Germont.

Accompanied by the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra. Featuring the Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

A co-production between New Zealand Opera, State Opera of South Australia and Opera Queensland.

This performance is 2h15m exclusive of interval.
