Media Centre > What's On > Welsh National Opera - La traviata

Tue 17 Nov, Fri 20 Nov (ARCHIVED LISTING)
Verdi’s deeply moving opera remains as haunting and touching as ever. Katia Pellegrino sings the title role with popular young British tenor Alfie Boe making his WNO debut as Alfredo.
Internationally acclaimed director David McVicar makes his WNO debut with a finely crafted, insightful and beautifully detailed staging. With exquisite designs setting the opera unmistakably in the Parisian salons and townhouses of the period, this production brings Violetta’s heartbreaking tragedy to life.
Cast includes Katia Pellegrino as Violetta Valery, Alfie Boe as Alfredo Germont, Dario Solari as Giorgio Germont, Eddie Wade as Baron Douphol, David Soar as Doctor Grenvil and Louise Poole as Flora Bervoix.
