       "Violetta Valéry is the shining star of Parisian nightlife. Surrounded by clutching patrons and

lusting fans, her life is a never ending party. When disease touches Violetta, and a naïve

young admirer makes her question her own happiness, Violetta must stare deep into the

shadows cast by all those bright lights... She knows that God will forgive her for enjoying her

youth - but will Man?"


Forced to change our venue with three days until opening night...?! 


"I've genuinely loved every Opera in a Box production I've seen. For years, for some reason or other, I'd only seen weird avant-garde operas and no proper classics. So getting to catch up on the greats of the opera repertoire in small venues performed by excellent musicians in imaginative and creative productions has been a really lovely thing."
