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.

For two-and-a-half uninterrupted hours Chevalier gives her voice and body to Violetta, driven by an obsessive love – with every trembling fibre.
