Violetta, a courtesan in Paris, opens her heart to Alfredo, a son of a wealthy man, though she is hesitant to accept his sincere courtship. They begin to enjoy each other’s company living together in the suburbs of the city. One day during Alfredo’s absence, his father Germont calls on Violetta to ask her to give up his son so that marriage arrangements for his daughter will proceed smoothly. Violetta decides to abandon her love and leaves Alfredo. After her return to Paris, Alfredo appears in front of her and accuses her of her betrayal in the presence of other people. Time passes, but it is too late when all misunderstandings have come to light. Sick in bed, Violetta dies as she is embraced by the love of Alfredo, who asks for her pardon.

Opera Appreciation for High School Students
In July each year, the NNTT offers a programme aimed at giving young people a fun introduction to the world of opera.
The works performed are selected from among the classic operas, based on their accessibility for a teenage audience, and are produced using the same costuming and stage settings that are used for our regular productions. Each work is presented in full
in the original language, with Japanese subtitles.
