The autumn season at Lincoln Theatre Royal opens with a performance of La Traviata.
The Russian State Ballet and Opera House present this haunting opera set in 19th Century Paris this Saturday, September 12 at 7.30pm.
One of the greatest Verdi operas, La Traviata is a love story shrouded in sacrifice and misunderstanding.
The title La Traviata literally means The Fallen Woman, or perhaps more figuratively, The Woman Who Strayed.
It recounts Dumas’ true-life affair with the beautiful demi-mondaine, Marie Duplessis.
