Discover the new season at Welsh National Opera, with stunning productions of La Traviata and Manon Lescaut.
Written by one of the greatest opera composers of all time, Manon Lescaut displays all the qualities found in a great Puccini opera. If you have seen Madam Butterfly, La bohéme or Tosca, you will be sure to love Welsh National Opera’s Manon Lescaut.
Inspired by the dark, brooding worlds of David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway, award-winning Theatre, Opera and Film Director Mariusz Trelinski sets his cinematic vision in an underground station where temptation and lust lurk around every corner.
There are some operas that you can see again and again, and La traviata is undoubtedly one of these. Regarded by many as opera at its finest, the drama, passion and power on stage, and the heart-stirring music will have you captivated right up to when the curtain falls.
Sir David McVicar’s production is traditional and elegant. The sumptuous dresses, beautiful lighting and opulent sets will transport you back to a high society life within the Parisian salons and town houses of the 19th century.
