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 is Verdi's last opera, but not his best. It suffers from the absence of a memorable melody. The costumes, sets, performers are all very good, but nothing is novel or remarkable. Even with the Goldstar discount, these were pricey tickets and I expected just a bit more. Still, it's a grand pageant and I'm glad I went and took my sons and a nephew.

The checking in process was really easy and fast, It was really nice to see that they had a pre-show speaker to give a little lecture about the performance. Our seats were almost to the back of the theatre, but I was able to see the stage well....continued
