La Traviata (The Fallen Woman) by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave.

25 October 2018 at the Bristol Hippodrome with optional pre-performance supper at Hotel du Vin.

Alfredo has fallen head over heels in love with the courtesan Violetta, but his father Germont disapproves of the fallen woman.  Penniless and fearing she will soon die, Violetta agrees to leave Alfredo believing it is in his best interest.  It is only when Germont hears that she is on her deathbed that he realises the error of his ways, and confesses all to Alfredo.  But is it too late?

The conflict of duty and thwarted love has made La Traviata a favourite with opera audiences across the world.  This classic production with sumptuous mid 19th century costumes features some of Verdi's most evocative music, including the Brindisi (the drinking song) - one of the best-known melodies in opera.

Please note, this performance will be sung in Italian, with English subtitles.

Why not come and enjoy the theatre and raise vital funds for eye research at the same time ....

By attending this event you will be helping to support vital eye research being carried out in universities across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  We currently fund research looking into most of the prevalent eye diseases that affect so many people, both young and old - including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Only 2% of all medical research funding is directed at eye disease and researchers rely heavily on the support of charities like National Eye Research Centre to enable important eye research to continue.

We have tickets available for the opera, commencing at 7:15 pm at the Bristol Hippodrome.

We also offer the opportunity to enjoy a pre-theatre 2 course supper at Hotel du Vin before the performance - a pay bar will be open from 5:00 pm and supper served at 5:30 pm.

Ticket price for opera only: £49 (to include a £10 donation for eye research)
