La Traviata screened to Chichester
Chichester Cinema at New Park stages a screening of English National Opera’s London Coliseum production of La Traviata (Friday, March 13, 6pm).
Spokeswoman Marika Player said: “ENO Screen’s live cinema broadcasts are as distinctive as ENO’s live work in the theatre, creating a unique cinematic experience for audience members across the globe. Multiple HD cameras provide unusual angles and close-up views of the action on stage and in the orchestra pit, giving a true cinematic experience for audiences.
“ENO presents the first revival of Peter Konwitschny’s celebrated production of one the most popular operas of all time. La Traviata tells the devastating tale of Violetta, the beautiful Parisian courtesan who shatters convention and sacrifices everything for love. Verdi’s masterpiece combines compelling characters with hugely-moving and instantly-recognisable melodies, making it one of the most emotionally-engaging and popular operas of all time.
“Making her UK debut in the role of Violetta, which launched the European career of soprano Corinne Winters in 2013, is young superstar soprano Elizabeth Zharoff. Fast emerging as one of opera’s most exciting young artists, Zharoff was a member of the Junges Ensemble at the Semperoper Dresden in their 2012-13 season.”
