Carmen & La Traviata

The highly acclaimed Russian State Ballet and Opera House have had huge success at the Belgrade with their stunning ballets. Now they return, accompanied by a live 30 piece orchestra, with their sumptuous productions of two of the most accessible and popular operas: Carmen on Thursday 30 August & La Traviata on Friday 31 August.

The music of Carmen has been widely acclaimed for the brilliance of its melodies, enthralling atmosphere and orchestration, as well as for the skill with which Bizet musically represented the emotions and suffering of his characters. Carmen is sung in French with English surtitles.

In La Traviata Giuseppe Verdi brings the beguiling splendour and gaiety of mid-19th century Parisian life to the stage. But beyond the revelry and hedonism lurks heartbreak and pathos in this tragic and resonant morality tale in which Violetta, a high-society courtesan with a heart of gold, sacrifices everything for the man she loves. La Traviata is sung in Italian with English surtitles.
