Glyndebourne: La Traviata
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Cinema screening of live performance.Verdi's tragic masterpiece is elegantly updated by director Tom Cairns in this 'fresh and thrillingly unfamiliar' (Independent) Glyndebourne production. Described as a soprano of 'huge presence, compelling to watch', Venera Gimadieva is 'thrilling' (Guardian) in her company debut as the doomed courtesan, well matched by Michael Fabiano's sharply suited and 'robustly sung' Alfredo (Financial Times), with Tassis Christoyannis delivering an imposing performance as the formidable Germont pre. Conductor Mark Elder reveals his mastery of the opera's dramatic shape, coaxing every nuance out of the London Philharmonic Orchestra to create beautifully stylish music-making.
