Verdi’s LA TRAVIATA by Welsh National Opera at New Theatre, Oxford
La Traviata is an old favourite but this revival of a classic production by WNO brings it up as fresh as if you had never heard it before. It really is nigh-on-faultless, with superb singing underpinned by exquisite orchestral sounds, atmospheric stage and costume design, sensitive acting and the electrifying conducting of James Southall.
