OperaUpClose: La Traviata

OperaUpClose, the company behind the Olivier Award winning production La Boheme - which won the 2011 Olivier Award for Best Opera Production - brings Verdi's tragic drama about a scandalous love affair set in 1850s to the King's Head Theatre, a small-scale off-West End alternative to London's two mainstream opera houses. La Traviata tells the story of Violetta who sacrifices her own happiness for the sake of her lover's family and future. This is the company's second co-production with Malmo Opera following their successful staging of Tosca which was first shown at the King's Head in 2012 and transferred to the Soho Theatre in August 2013. Robin Norton-Hale, one of the three founders who along with Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Ben Cooper set up OperaUpClose in 2009, directs.
