Barefoot Opera – La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi

A dynamic, contemporary take on Verdi’s classic tale of love and loss featuring one of the most iconic scores of all time.
Barefoot Opera brings a fresh, youthful take to Verdi’s classic tale, with physical theatre, movement and stripped-back staging, whilst the performers are accompanied by a small group of musicians on piano, clarinet, double bass and accordion, collectively known as the Barefoot Band.

A production for newcomers to opera as much as opera lovers, the outstanding international cast, including rising star Turkish soprano Beren Kader Fidan as Violetta, and South African-born tenor Tylor Lamani as Alfredo, will perform alongside singers from community choirs, schools and colleges from across Kent, Sussex and London.

Verdi’s opera pulls at the heart strings with its extraordinary music, and, touching on themes of envy, hypocrisy and toxic masculinity, is as relevant today as it ever was. Contrasting party scenes with tender intimate moments, this is a must-see opera event.

Reviews:
‘An inspired approach to making accessible opera’ (Hastings Independent, 2023)
‘A delightful feast of vocal virtuosity and comic verve’ (The Stage, 2023)
‘A sublime combination of powerful singing, expressive acting and humour which drew the audience into the performance’ (Rye News, 2024)

Tickets will be available to purchase in July.
