Verdi's La Traviata

2 & 3 August 2024, 7.30pm

One of the most iconic, romantic and tragic operas of all time.
Verdi and his librettist, Francesco Maria Piave, spin an intimate tale of devotion, social expectation, and illness, centered on just three characters—  a tragic tale about Parisian courtesan, Violetta, who attempts to leave the life she knows behind to try and finally find true love. When she meets romantic, Alfredo, the hypocrisy of upper-class society threatens their love – and someone must pay the ultimate price.

Cox & Box

Saturday August 3 2023, 3pm

A one-act comic opera with a libretto by F. C. Burnand and music by Arthur Sullivan.  It was Sullivan’s first successful comic opera, written five years before Thespis, his first opera with W. S. Gilbert.

The story follows two men, Mr. Box and Mr. Cox, who unknowingly rent the same room from the same landlord. The two men work opposite shifts, with Box working during the day and Cox working at night. What could possibly go wrong?
