February 08, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
People spending time in Cumbria next month will have an opportunity to enjoy a performance of Guiseppe Verdi's classic opera La Traviata.
The Sands Centre in Carlisle is due to stage a new production of the 1853 work, featuring sopranos Rosa Lee Thomas and Elena Dee.
Taking place at 19:30 GMT on Sunday March 4th, the performance will be delivered in Italian with English subtitles and promises to be a memorable occasion for opera fans.
With highlights such as Libiamo ne' lieti calici (The Drinking Song) and Violetta's aria Addio Del Passato, La Traviata is a tale of passion and decadence that remains one of the world's most popular operas.
Set in 19th century Paris, it tells the tragic story of doomed courtesan Violetta and her young lover Alfredo.
La Traviata, which was based on a stage adaptation of The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas, features a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave.
Tickets for the performance at the Sands Centre are available online, priced between £26 and £28 plus booking fee.
Opera lovers can visit to choose from a wide variety of hotels in the Lake District, including the Landing Cottage Guest House.
Go to or contact the box office on 01228 625222 for more information about this event.
