La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta Valéry and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Falling hopelessly in love, the two leave the dizzying heights of Paris society for the country.
Their love affair threatens to shame Alfredo’s family name. His father confronts Violetta to try to get her to leave Alfredo, to save his family name and the reputation of his sister. In an act of self-sacrifice, Violetta agrees to leave her one true love and ends up paying the ultimate price.
Northern Ireland Opera will unite with the Ulster Orchestra in bringing to life this opera.
