The height of romance at the height of summer - Spark Opera and North West Opera debut La Traviata at the Millennium Forum
This year, on the 7th and 8th of August, Spark Opera are collaborating with North West Opera to produce Verdi's well-loved masterpiece, La Traviata, in the Millennium Forum in Derry-Londonderry.
The most popular opera in the world, La Traviata ('fallen woman' in Italian) is the story of a courtesan who sacrifices everything to protect the man she loves.
Who we are
Spark Opera is a little company with a big mission - to make new opera, youth opera and community opera a reality in Northern Ireland. We'd like to put living composers, artists-in-training and volunteers at the centre of opera through work that's fresh, high quality and connected to its audience. And we'd like to do it at least once a year where we live.
