Just as the great master, Giuseppe Verdi completed Il Trovatore and La Traviata in succession, Gozo’s Teatru tal-Opra Aurora has taken the bold decision to stage these two masterpieces in the same sequence. Thus, after the 2014 successful production of Il Trovatore, the Aurora is proudly announcing La Traviata for October 17th, 2015.

And just as Verdi went from great supreme with these two of his ever-greatest operatic works, the Aurora commits itself to higher benchmarks. With a plot that sends us at the heart of 1700’s Paris, La Traviata has always been considered as the ultimate operatic fashion-parade of music, drama, scenery and costumes. These helped the opera maintain its ratings and secure performance records to this day and age.

One of Verdi’s most romantic operas, known for its lavish costumes, sumptuous arias, and festive brindisi will be brought to life at the Aurora – Malta and Gozo’s largest opera house – on October 17th 2015 as Colin Attard leads the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, the Aurora Opera Chorus and an international cast that is to be announced in due course.

La Traviata returns at the Aurora for a third time, after previous performances in 1978 and 1998.

Tickets for La Traviata may be purchased online via this website or by email info@leone.org.mt as of January 15th 2015.
