Verdi: La traviata Mo 6.7. um 19:00 - 22:15

Love and Death was the initial name suggested for the opera La traviata, literally translated as ”the lost woman”. Violetta is basking in attention and offers intimacy at a cost. Behind her smile she’s consumed by loneliness, but in the heat of the night her longing remains hidden.

Despite this, La traviata champions love that sees behind the mask, ”love mysterious and profound”. The true story has also inspired cinematic interpretations like Pretty Woman and Moulin Rouge. With his music that sends shivers up your spine, Verdi has made it larger than life.

The role of Violetta is sung by the Swedish Ida Falk Winland and Marjukka Tepponen, both known as skilled interpreters of demanding roles.
