Opera in Cinema: La Traviata Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour

Verdi's La Traviata shines in this spectacular production from Opera Australia, performed on a floating stage in the Sydney Harbor under the stars. The famous Sydney Opera House is the backdrop in this dramatic new staging, which features a nearly 30-foot chandelier suspended over the stage. Opera Insider raves: "This mega-production deserves only three words - Fantastic ! Fantastic ! Fantastic !" Visionary director Francescsa Zambello directs, with an "electrifying" Emma Matthews as Violetta, with Jonathan Summers and Gianluca Terranova rounding out the cast. (Stage Noise)
