Scottish Director David McVicar and Tanya McCallin, the creative team behind Scottish Opera’s Der Rosenkavalier, offer an authentic take on one of the world’s most famous operas. Bohemian artists, showgirls, courtesans … the rich and the wretched mix together within the shady underworld of the Parisian demi-monde.
Carmen Giannattasio makes her Scottish Opera début playing the lead role of Violetta, Federico Lepre sings Alfredo, and Richard Zeller returns to Scottish Opera as Giorgio Germont. French conductor Emmanuel Joel-Hornak returns for this production.
