One of Verdi's most well-known operas, this skillfully written piece is a perfect introduction to the art form and a favourite of seasoned veterans.
Set in 19th century Paris, La Traviata ("The Fallen Woman") tells the tragic tale of an exquisite courtesan who gives up her pursuit of money and meaningless pleasure for the love of a young man. True love triumphs over all and the heart-wrenching finale will not leave a dry eye in the theatre.
The story was immortalised in the classic movie Camille starring Greta Garbo and later given a popular update in Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts. Audiences will immediately recognise many of the musical numbers.
Sung in Italian with English and Chinese subtitiles.
Tickets at $25, $38, $68, $88, $110, $130 and $150 from SISTIC.
