Opera: La Traviata (CANCELLED)

Saturday 18 July 2020
6:15 pm - 10.00 pm

A one-time only opportunity to watch Opera Brava’s ‘La Traviata’ (sung in English) in the stunning setting of the Weald & Downland Living Museum in Singleton, Chichester, West Sussex.

Gates open 6.15 pm. Performance begins 7.00 pm.


From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas.

Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s fantastic melodies include the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing.

Christopher Lane’s production for Opera Brava will bring out all the emotional colour, from the first discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion.


Tickets will be available to book online or on the gate.

  • Adults £30
  • Children up to 17 years £10

Doors open at 6.15 pm for a 7.00 pm start.

Please ensure you bring your proof of ticket purchase with you, either a printed copy or on your smartphone or tablet.  Your ticket will be void and admission refused without proof of purchase.
