La Traviata, Giuseppe Verdi’s dramatic masterpiece based on Alexandre Dumas’ novel The Lady of the Camellias, is one of the world’s most widely performed operas. Set in the same time as it was written, audiences were scandalised by the wanton lifestyle of its central character. A selection of three scenes will reinforce the dramatic line of the opera and acting skills involved. (three singers and a pianist).Carmen
Carmen is a story of love, passion and death. Don José and Carmen have a date with a destiny foretold that was, perhaps, a result of their personalities.
