Saturday 18th September 2021

Albany, Western Australia

Internationally-acclaimed and interstate artists come together with Albany’s stars for a concert performance of the world’s most popular opera; Verdi’s La traviata


With the most famous tunes in all of opera, thrilling solo moments, party scenes and intimate, poignant duets, La traviata is the timeless story of Violetta Valery; a true story of a young woman who rose to fame and fell in love, and then sacrificed it all.
