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.
