Following from last year's successful performance of Rossini's 'Cinderella' at Upstairs at the Gatehouse in London's Highgate, Opera Loki is staging a production of Verdi's La Traviata. The performance marks the 200th anniversary of Verdi's birth.
This year, Opera Loki sets a pocket production of this dramatic masterpiece in 1930s Paris. For years Flora has kept her beloved friends hidden away from the world and its troubles. The beautiful Violetta and her fellow Bright Young Things have kept the party rolling for years, sharing love affairs, endless nights, wealth and happiness. However, their world is changing; fascism is rising to the east, a handsome stranger has infiltrated their little world, and Violetta is dying. Clinging to the people and comfort around her, Violetta tries her best to stop time marching on. What happens when the party ends?"
Sung in English with a translation by Edmund Tracey.
Tickets are priced at £14 (£12) and £16 (£14) and available for performances on 5, 6, 7 and 8 September 2013.
