La Traviata, 5th to 7th November, 19:30
La Traviata – ‘the fallen woman’ – is the story in music of Violetta, the beautiful, pleasure-loving, sexual mercenary, who dares for the first time to commit her capricious heart, only to be asked to make the most terrible of sacrifices. With the drama transplanted to within the smart set of the nineteen-fifties, Verdi’s passionate, exuberant, heartbreaking score is performed by Kennet Opera, who have been entertaining Newbury audiences for over twenty years, and who now make their debut at the Arlington Arts Centre. La Traviata is sung in English.
