The Opera evolve through the elegant rooms of the Trinity House so as to take advantage of an ideal and complementary natural setting.
The first act begins in the Library Room and the spectators will realise with amazement that they are actually playing the role of the Violetta’s guests (Traviata): she drinks a toast with them and among these she will meet Alfredo.
The drama of Violetta’s illness and death is consummated in the in the Court Room and not even the magnificent densely-woven carpet or the extraordinary 18th-century stuccos can divert attention from the emotional intensity of the music: the voices of the singers, in close intimacy, resonate in the heart and soul.
The costumes of La Traviata are inspired by the Thirties and realised by the prestigious Nicolao Atelier. Nicolao’s original costumes have been admired all over the world in the most famous Opera Theatres such as Teatro la Fenice in Venice, the Teatro La Scala in Milan, the Lyric Opera in Chicago and Washington DC. Nicolao has also created costumes for important film productions such as “Farinelli-Voce Regina” (1994, Gérard Corbiau), “The Merchant of Venice” (2004, Michael Radford), “Casanova” (2005, Lasse Hallstrom) and for award-winning TV shows such as “Outlander”.
Among the appreciated achievements is a Fancy Dress Costumes exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art – Costume Institute of New York.
