Early-October Performance: Would be a tragedy to miss it

Opera:
LA TRAVIATA
Oct 4-Nov 12; Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; 62-895kr, kglteater.dk

Giuseppe Verdi’s mid-life masterpiece La Traviata (aka ‘The Fallen Women’) is an opera classic beloved the world over.

Set in 18th century Paris, it follows the love affair of Violetta, a courtesan, and her admirer, the young and romantic nobleman Alfredo.

This story of high society and narrow minds is taken on by members of the Royal Danish Theatre’s soloist ensemble, joined by Greek star baritone Dimitris Tiliakos as Alfredo’s domineering father.

Guest director David Radok rejoins the theatre with his popular interpretation, ensuring La Traviata will not fall.

Czech group The Spitfire Company are bringing their multi award-winning brand of physical theatre to Denmark.

Blending physical and visual theatre with dance and music, One Step Before the Fall explores collapse, exhaustion and conflict through a boxing ring, whilst dealing with the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease and its effects.

Director Petr Boháč’s experimental vision comes to life through the music and voice of Lenka Dusilová and the breadth of Markéta Vacovská’s intense performance. This is original, thought-provoking theatre at its very best.
