Cinemas around the UK will be screening Opera Australia's innovative staging of Verdi's La traviata, which took place on a purpose-built floating stage, against a backdrop of the world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. The stage in Francesca Zambello's spectacular production is fashioned to resemble an ornate and massive silver salver, and features a 9-metre chandelier suspended above the stage, together with fireworks in the harbour.

The cast includes leading Australian soprano Emma Matthews as Violeta,  Gianluca Terranova as Alfredo, and Jonathan Summers as Giorgio Germont. The performance is conducted by Brian Castles-Onion.

Artistic Director for Opera Australia, Lyndon Terracini said of the event, 'I'm delighted that we now have the opportunity for opera lovers in the UK to be able to enjoy some of Opera Australia's most wonderful productions'.

The performance of Opera Australia's La traviata will be in cinemas in the UK on 31 July. Visit the CinemaLive website for details of a screening near you.
