Current Opera: La Traviata (May 2018)
May 18th to 27th 2018
Directed by Sophie Gilpin
Music Director Sam Evans
With The HGO Orchestra
Sophie Gilpin’s sparkling new production of Verdi’s masterpiece takes us into a world of extravagant parties and political sex scandals. Drawing inspiration from the era of the ‘swinging sixties’, Violetta is a socialite and ‘it-girl’ and Georgio Germont a politician concerned that his son Alfredo’s affair will jeopardise his leadership campaign.
The opera is sung by tomorrow’s stars, outstanding young soloists on the threshold of successful careers. The intimate surroundings of Jacksons Lane Theatre help the team to reach the very essence of this poignant drama, animating Verdi’s musical evocation of the characters and the emotions which drive them.
