A scandal when it first debuted, Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata went on to become the composer's most popular opera. Featuring some of the world's best known arias, this bittersweet love story is a glorious depiction of the opulent Roaring '20s. La Traviata tells the grand story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving but frail Violetta Valéry, who unexpectedly finds true love with a younger man, resulting in tragic consequences. One of opera's greatest romances, La Traviata returns in Marta Domingo's dazzlingly updated art deco-inspired production. Nino Machaidze, one of LA Opera's favorite leading ladies, returns as Violetta, with Arturo Chacón-Cruz as her handsome Alfredo. The incomparable Plácido Domingo returns in one of his newest signature roles, as a father determined to do the right thing. Learn More

This ballet was not only technically astounding, it also was incredibly beautiful and inspiring. I don't understand the negative reviews but the vast majority of the audience certainly did not agree with the nay-sayers. The audience broke out in extended applause numerous times throughout the performance and gave a lengthy standing ovation at the end. It was fun, funny, sweet and tender. We had great seats. Thanks, Goldstar!

“Those looking for passion, Latin or otherwise, will find it in this idiosyncratic 1988 version of the 19th-century Don Quixote…a production filled with dramatic motivation.” —The New York Times
Combining classical romanticism with a Latin boldness, Ballet Nacional de Cuba is one of the most prestigious ballet companies performing today. The company will present the classic Don Quixote featuring the fearless strength of its dancers and Alicia Alonso’s inventive choreography accompanied by the L.A. Opera Orchestra. Rarely touring in the U.S., this Music Center debut is an event that can’t be missed.
