This was the best Violeta I have seen among the 4 La Traviatas I have seen so far, worldwide.

Quotes & Highlights

“La Traviata will go down in opera history as one of the most successful productions LA Opera has staged to date…every element was stupendous.” —OperaOnline.us
London’s Evening Standard praises soprano Marina Poplavskaya for “her mesmerizing dramatic intensity and vocal power.”

Description

Returning will be Elizabeth Futral, who The New York Times lauded for her “florid coloratura roulades and embellishments that seem natural elaborations of long melodic lines.” Massimo Giordano and Aleksei Dolgov play Violetta’s love interest, Alfredo Germont. Andrzej Dobber and Stephen Powell share the role of Giorgio Germont. Grant Gershon makes his podium debut, and Marta Domingo directs the lavish period staging of Verdi’s best-loved opera.
