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

After Das Rheingold, I was just not sure what to expect from Die Walkure. Well, I need not have worried. It was just wonderful. While I wish that Placido Domingo still had the voice he had 20 years ago, I was more that satisfied with his performance. While Linda Watson had a few pitch problems at the upper register, whe was still a really powerful Brunhilde. Anja Kampe was wonderful as Sieglinde. And finally, Vitalij Kowaljow steals the show as Wotan. There is little doubtTthat very soon he will be sought after to play Wotan by every venue doing Walkurie or the Ring. It has been wonderful to see him in Rheingold and Walkurie.The Freyer designs and directions really came alive with Walkurie and it makes me excited to see the rest of his ring.
It was a wonderful almost 5 hours......

Fantastic opportunity to see this opera. Domingo was as great as always, alongside a wonderful cast. The kooky-modern design that I did not find effective in "Das Rheingold" worked tremendously well here. And I had a very excellent seat via Goldstar!
“You really must beg, borrow, steal, or preferably buy a ticket to see Plácido Domingo as Siegmund,” exhorts The London Times. And who better to match his artistry than soprano Anja Kampe – when paired with Plácido Domingo at Washington National Opera, the Washington Post declared them “the definitive Sieglinde and Siegmund of this century’s first decade.” This compelling love story between the doomed hero and his soulmate features some of Wagner’s most memorable music. Highlights include Siegmund’s heroic “Spring Song” (“Winterstürme”), the love duet (“Du bist der Lenz”), the rousing “Ride of the Valkyries”, Wotan’s heart-breaking “Farewell” to his beloved daughter (“Leb wohl”), and the “Magic Fire Music” finale. James Conlon conducts a world-celebrated cast, including Linda Watson (Brünnhilde), Michelle DeYoung (Fricka), Vitalij Kowaljow (Wotan), and Eric Halfvarson (Hunding).
