The Royal Opera House once again turns Trafalgar Square into an outdoor venue, for this live screening of La Traviata.
One of the most popular BP Summer Big Screens, this is a great chance to grab a place on the stone paving, bring a picnic, and enjoy world class theatre for free. Verdi's tragic tale of a Parisian courtesan who sacrifices all for love, is as popular as it's ever been. Bursting into life with its famous drinking song the show then descends into classic Italian tragedy, as Violetta gives up her glamorous lifestyle when she finds true love with Alfredo. But Alfredo's father begs her to renounce his son. Can she survive this blow?
Directed by Richard Eyre, this production features the wife and husband pairing of Ailyn Perez as Violetta and Stephen Costello as Alfredo.
