Open Curtain Night: 30 April
For the first time in Melbourne, Opera Australia is leaving the curtain open during it's remarkable 4-minute scene change between Acts II and III, giving audiences a glimpse of how the magic really happens in this hugely popular and critically acclaimed production of La Traviata.

Raise your glass, flutter your pretty lashes, it's Paris in the salons and you're the life of this party. He's staring at you, he's singing for you... Are you tempted?

Violetta wears velvet and lace and drinks the very best champagne from crystal glasses. Her parties are legendary, her company desired. She's free and free-spirited, living outside society's bounds, and for this courtesan, it seems like the party will never end. Could a little love really change everything?

La Traviata is so popular because it puts a life we can only dream of on stage, with its risqué glamour, joys and sorrows.

Verdi's music sings of freedom with flying melodies, makes merry with rousing drinking songs and leaves us, at the last, with passionate duets between breaking hearts.

This production by Elijah Moshinsky is one of Opera Australia's most successful, featuring lush party scenes in Paris and beautiful autumn afternoons in the countryside.

Lavish, crowded sets and exquisite costumes combined with Verdi's famous tunes offer the perfect way to experience opera for the first time, or the chance to revisit a favourite with an exciting new cast.

Outstanding young American soprano Corinne Winters makes her Australian debut in her signature role as Violetta.
