La Traviata

Giuseppe Verdi

The director, Richard Brunel, who had already successfully staged Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélies in the city’s theatre in 2015, is full of ideas (…): a set design dotted with numerous details and symbols, magnificently emphasizing its eroticism.

Von Helmut Christian Mayer, Kleine Zeitung Klagenfurt

Many minor characters take on a new dimension in Brunel’s production.

Standing ovation!

Von Helmut Christian Mayer, Kleine Zeitung Klagenfurt

The director tells us the story of a dying woman, a courtesan who sacrifices her own happiness for love. And he does a great job of it!

Irina Lino, Kronen Zeitung Klagenfurt

A must-see!

Irina Lino, Kronen Zeitung Klagenfurt

An ideal cast. This exciting season keeps on giving!

Michael Cerha, Der Standard Klagenfurt, septembre 2017

Brunel successfully brings this tragic love story from the 19th century to life through a modern staging.

Using contemporary elements, such as a disco ball, a revolving stage or even X-ray images, all three acts of La Traviata have been staged with refreshing modernity.
