Paris Opera 19/20 cinema season opens on 24 Sept
FRA cinéma presents the live transmission of La Traviata in cinemas.
© François Roussillon et Associés
Beginning his opera with a prelude for strings of unprecedented economy of means, in 1853, Verdi affirmed his intention of defying conventions and norms. This is not the least radical aspect of his “Traviata”, which implacably strips bare the violence of a society that promotes worldly pleasures only to sacrifice an innocent woman on the altar of bourgeois morality.
Simon Stone delights in grappling with the major works of the repertoire, enticing them into more intimate territory. One of today’s most distinguished stage directors, he now makes his long-awaited debut at the Paris Opera.
Live broadcast in cinemas across Europe on Tuesday, 24 Sept. at 7:15 PM CET and on a delayed basis to other cinemas in Europe, Canada, South Africa and Australia. And also live streaming on Medici.tv
