Violetta gives up every hope of happiness in this heart-wrenching love story.

Alfredo, a young man from the provinces, falls in love with Violetta, the stylish toast of Paris. But she's not the marrying kind - at least not until now. Their dreams are threatened by a condemning society and an equally merciless disease.

The poignant tale unfolds through Verdi's robust, tuneful score, laced through with melodies as familiar as the story.

Violetta Venera Gimadieva

la clemenza resize

A brand new take on one of Mozart's final works, delivering sublime musical beauty and heart-tugging humanity.

Loosely based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, La clemenza di Tito distills the suspense of Don Giovanni, the warmth of The Marriage of Figaro, and the nobility of The Magic Flute into one powerful parable of love and friendship, vengeance and mercy.

Tito Steve Davislim
Vitellia Alice Coote
Sesto Kate Lindsey
