La traviata
Royal Opera House LIVE Opera
Corinium Cinema
Wednesday 30 January, 6.45pm
From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heartbreaking 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 wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
Cost: £17 per adult, £15 members

From Saints Bones to Charles Dickens’ Monkey

Henry VIII’s glove, Jane Austen’s Table, Sir Edward Elgar’s glasses – biographically significant objects like these have been displayed for centuries.

Dr Caroline Morris will share her research on biographical objects with a brief history of their display; describing the influences upon the development of the modern biographical museum from the medieval reliquary and the Renaissance wunderkammer to Romanticism and the Arts & Crafts movement.
