Wednesday 20 to Friday 22 June
6.30pm at The Scoop,  More London Riverside; free
The Merry Opera Company present an open-air production
translated, adapted and directed by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. In
the cultural melting-pot of East London's galleries, clubs
and cafés, burlesque artiste Violetta is the reigning queen,
adored by everyone from barristers to baristas. But she's
hiding a fearful secret. When she unexpectedly and
unconditionally falls for young City trader Al, neither has
any idea where it might lead, especially since Al harbours a
secret too... This updated version of La Traviata has been
placed in the heart of East London's galleries and burlesque
clubs in 2012 with a multi-cultural cast. It fits with The
Merry Opera Company's philosophy of widening the appeal of
opera by staging professional shows in modern English and
can be appreciated by audiences accustomed to music theatre
and pantomime, while staying true to the core of the
original.
