The most popular Verdi opera

This romantic story of young love overshadowed by illness is the most popular Verdi opera ever performed at the FNOB. The current production has been in the repertoire since 1988, with almost 200 performances. And there is no end in sight, thanks in part to the shining white 19th-century style set but above all to the immortal music of Verdi.

Recommended for children over the age of 9.

Ticket sale for performances in January opens on Wednesday 4th October at 9 AM.

#latraviata

La Traviata; Siphiwe McKenzie; Jaakko Kortekangas

La Traviata is a cornucopia of compelling melodies and elegant orchestration that underpin both the wistfulness of farewell and raucous parties in Paris.

La Traviata_Finnish National Opera

Violetta’s death scene after her fatal illness is one of the most achingly beautiful in the history of opera.

Synopsis

Alfredo’s family does not approve of him consorting with a woman of bad reputation, and Violetta is obliged to forsake her love. Finally the young lovers are reunited, but by then death is already claiming Violetta.

A full synopsis and background information are available in the programme booklet.
