Cult production by Benedikt von Peter and Nicole Chevalier – only ten performances
Violetta is alone in the world. Nicole Chevalier is alone on stage. The American star soprano has been thrilling audiences for many years with her moving solo performance in the title role of Verdi's melodrama. Benedikt von Peter has managed to stage a radically condensed study of loneliness, as contemporary as it is timeless. Nicole Chevalier will be a regular guest at Theater Basel in the coming years.

About the work
NEW! Digital bookstall
Together with our dramaturgy team, Basel’s arts centre Bider and Tanner has been curating the bookstall for our performances for many years. The wide range of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues and even sheet music is now available 24/7 in the online shop. It’s worth taking a regular look.
NEW! Instead of a matinée – before the premiere
Shortly before the premiere, during the final rehearsals, we invite you to take a exclusive look behind the scenes. During an initial introduction you will get to know the artistic team and learn more about the production, inspiration and staging. Afterwards you will witness a stage rehearsal.
