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

Easy pick up of tickets and very good seats in the Orchestra Ring. Glad I didn't pay top dollar and had Goldstar discount. A aurally stimulating experience that was modern and made you relate to music and sounds and words in a totally different way. At times the repetitiveness was mind numbing but overall intresting.

audience to world premiere and the concept that in spite of no
intermission, it was designed for people to go in and out as they wished.. most people sat for almost 2 hours before...continued
