Just a girl spreading the word about all the fun (and probably nerdy) things to do!
An operatic staple filled with love, drama and loss
La Traviata is an Italian opera in three parts by Giuseppe Verdi of the story of Violetta, the ultimate party girl who falls madly in love with Alfredo but their love is held back by the conforms of society.
This particular production is performed by Lorina Gore as Violetta, Kang Wang as Alfredo and Jose Carbo as Germont alongside the Opera Queensland Chorus. The Queensland Symphony Orchestra are providing the musical backing led by Dane Lam, bringing this 1853 show to life in the modern-day and age.
Located at the Lyric Theatre in QPAC, this show is incredibly accessible by public transport via busses at the Cultural Centre, and trains from South Brisbane, even the CityCat from South Bank Ferry Stop. There is also paid parking available details here.
There will be complimentary pre-performance talks one hour prior to the performance for the following shows: Sat 16, Tue 19, Thur 21, Sat 23
Additionally, there are Auslan interpreted performances for the deaf community for the below timeslots: Thur 21 7:30pm
And audio descriptions available for the below timeslots: Sat 23 1:30pm
This show lasts approximately 2.5 hours with intervals and will be sung in Italian with English subtitles (to which I am incredibly glad as I would love to be able to follow along with the story without having to study Italian first).

This opera is a classic and an operatic staple. If you have the opportunity, you should definitely take the time to invest in this opera and its many twists and turns that make modern-day Netflix sagas seem tame.
