This fall, following the incredible success of Thaïs, General DirectorPlácido Domingo and soprano Nino Machaidze return to the LA Opera stage in Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata to open our 2014/15 Season. Conducted by Music Director James Conlon, this classic Verdi masterpiece stars Mr. Domingo as Giorgio Germont, tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz as his son, Alfredo Germont, and the stunning Ms.Machaidze in her role debut as Violetta.
In the opulent world of Paris – updated in director Marta Domingo’s staging to the Roaring Twenties – a naive young man falls head over heels for a glamorous party girl. Together they trade the fast life for an idyllic love nest far from the city…until an unexpected visitor threatens to tear them apart. The powerful romantic drama, illuminated through Verdi’s soaring arias and passionate duets, have long made La Traviata one of the most popular of all operas.
La Traviata opens Saturday, September 13, for six performances only. Individual tickets go on sale to the general public on June 22, but are available in full and mini subscription packages now.
