SOFIA COPPOLA'S OPERA DEBUT AMONG THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2017/18 PALACE OPERA & BALLET CINEMA SEASON
Academy Award-winner Sofia Coppola’s blockbuster debut opera production of Verdi's La Traviata is among twelve new productions set to screen in the 2017/18 Palace Opera & Ballet cinema season, commencing Friday 17 November nationally and at Cinema Paradiso on Sunday 19 November
 
A sumptuous collaboration with haute couture designer Valentino and Hollywood production designer Nathan Crowley, La Traviata broke centuries-long house records in Rome last year, and will receive its Australian premiere screenings in cinemas this coming April.

Ms. Coppola’s production features alongside brand new productions from Paris’ Opera National, Milan’s La Scala and Rome's Opera di Roma, all screening concurrently with their live European performances. Some of the international opera and ballet circuit’s most highly anticipated new stagings of the coming year are included, such as Jonas Kaufmann in Don Carlos this December, Anna Netrebko in Andrea Chenier and Sonya
Yoncheva in La Bohème this February and Jacques Imbrailo in Billy Budd in August.

“It’s such a great luxury to be able to experience what’s on stage today in Paris and the major Italian opera houses, from a cinema seat right here in Australia,” said Palace Opera & Ballet’s Michael Tait.

“Giving Australian arts-lover’s access to Sofia Coppola’s La Traviata is a great coup, we’re really looking
forward to it.“Experience the latest from Opera de Paris, La Scala and Opera di Roma – filmed live on stage in Europe, and screening in Perth only weeks later – exclusive to Cinema Paradiso!

Each production screens only once on Sundays at 10.30am. Please book your seats promptly to avoid disappointment.
