Brilliant opera productions in the best opera house!


Featuring one of the most romantic, brilliant and tragic scores of all time, Verdi’s masterpiece contrasts spectacular grand opera choruses with scenes of indescribable tenderness and love.

La Traviata is the story of the tragic love between the demimondaine Violetta and the younger, passionate Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to ruin his family. His father appeals to Violetta to give up Alfredo for the sake of his family. Knowing that she is ill and she can never marry Alfredo, she relinquishs her one chance of happiness and leaves him in an ultimate act of self-sacrifice.

The Barber of Seville is the most popular of all opera comedies. Rossini’s effervescent music inspires smiles and laughter on every page. The irrepressible Rosina refuses to marry her pompous old guardian. Meanwhile, a bold young count is eager to win Rosina for himself. And who’s going to make sure those two finish the opera united? The cleverest character in all of Seville: the multitalented barber, Figaro, whose services are sought after by everyone for everything.
