Camille Opens in West End March 11

News   Camille Opens in West End March 11 Neil Bartlett's production of Camille opens at the Lyric, Hammersmith March 11.

Bartlett has adapted Alexander Dumas' story for the stage — just as Verdi did, in his opera La Traviata. Daniella Nardini (from BBC's “This Life”) stars as Marguerite Gaultier, a courtesan who falls in love with a handsome young man of a good family — with disastrous consequences.

A story of love across the nineteenth-century class divide, with the added poignancy of an early death, this is a European story that has been turned into plays and films as well as opera.
