One of Verdi's most popular and enduring operas, the Royal Opera House's version of La traviata has proven hugely popular. La traviata tells the story of the Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry, one of opera's greatest heroines and based on the real-life courtesan Marie Duplessis, who died in 1847 aged just 23. In this revival, Violetta is sung by Russian soprano Venera Gimadieva in her debut with The Royal Opera, following her successful appearance as Violetta at the Glyndebourne Festival. Regarded as one of Verdi's finest operas - and with Richard Eyre's traditional staging - La traviata is one of The Royal Opera's most popular productions.
