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 Twenties. 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

Can a worldly Parisian courtesan find lasting love in the arms of a naive young man from the provinces? Our heroine Magda is living a life of luxury filled with free-flowing champagne, fizzy frivolity, and light-hearted liaisons. And her “patron” Rambaldo keeps footing the entire bill. Upon meeting the handsome young Ruggero, she realizes he’s her soul mate, and they run off to the Riviera together. But just as a swallow follows its inevitable destiny, Magda’s sordid past dictates the outcome of the illusion.
Featuring the heart-melting “Doretta’s Dream Song” (heard in the film A Room with a View), La Rondine is a little-known treasure-trove that includes some of Puccini’s most rhapsodic music. Marta Domingo directs the captivating production of this Puccini jewel.
