About the Film:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Opera in Cinema: Arena di Verona’s Roméo et Juliette will not screen on Jan 5 and 7 as previously advertised. We apologize for any inconvenience and instead are excited to offer two exclusive sneak peak screenings of La Traviata from the Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour.

Giuseppe Verdi | Opera in three acts sung in Italian | 129 mins plus one intermission

Verdi’s La Traviata shines in this spectacular production from Opera Australia, performed on a floating stage in the Handa Opera on Sydney Harbor under the stars. The famous Sydney Opera House is the backdrop in this dramatic new staging, which features a nearly 30-foot chandelier suspended over the stage. Visionary director Francescsa Zambello directs, with Emma Matthews as Violetta and Jonathan Summers and Gianluca Terranova rounding out the cast.
