LA TRAVIATA von Giuseppe Verdi
03 FEBRUARY 2017– 01 APRIL 2017

DESCRIPTION – Raise your glass, flutter your pretty lashes, it’s Paris in the salons and you’re the life of this party. He’s staring at you, he’s singing for you… Are you tempted?

Violetta wears velvet and lace and drinks the very best champagne from crystal glasses. Her parties are legendary, her company sought after. She’s free and free-spirited, living outside society’s bounds, and for the courtesan, it seems like the party will never end. Could a little love really change everything?

La Traviata is so popular because it puts a life we couldn’t possibly dream of on stage, with its risqué glamour, joys and sorrows. Verdi’s music paints a picture of freedom with flying melodies, makes merry with rousing drinking songs and brings it all to a close with passionate duets between breaking hearts.

This production by Elijah Moshinsky is one of our most successful, featuring lush party scenes in Paris and beautiful autumn afternoons in the countryside. Lavish, crowded sets and exquisite costumes combined with Verdi’s famous, hummable tunes offer the perfect way to experience opera for the first time, or the chance to revisit a favourite with an exciting new cast.

The season opens with Ermonela Jaho as Violetta, who The Economist called „the world’s most acclaimed soprano“ after she won the reader’s choice award at the International Opera Awards, and also features two Australian star sopranos, Lorina Gore and Emma Matthews.

Parsifal mit Jonas Kaufmann

CONCERT HALL, SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE AUGUST 9 – 14, 2017

CONCERT PERFORMANCE Jonas Kaufmann is the greatest tenor of our time, and he returns to the Sydney Opera House to perform one of opera’s most challenging roles in a rare concert performance of Wagner’s final opera.

The power and majesty of Wagner’s music needs massive orchestral forces. Released from the orchestra pit to fill the stage, the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra, under the conductor Pinchas Steinberg, will be something to behold.

In a story drawn from the Arthurian legends of holy relics, enchanted maidens and faithful knights, the fate of the knights rest on the shoulders of a pure fool, Parsifal. Kaufmann describes the opera as a „transcendent journey led by the music“.

From the first, unsettling notes of the prelude, the music makes you believe in something, he says, and it doesn’t really matter what. „It’s written perfectly. Wagner takes your hand and leads you into this mysterious world, and you stay there for hours but you don’t realise the time has gone by.“

Lean back, give in to the music, and something extraordinary can happen, Kaufmann says.
