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 my first time seeing the Magic Flute. I loved the costumes and the sets. The voices were excellent. We had first row seats and it was interesting to be close but impossible to read the words above the stage. At intermission we moved back.
I recommend this opera for first timers.

I absolutely loved The Magic Flute! The staging, sets, and costumes were wonderful. Our seats were fantastic, and we just had a great time. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I highly recommend this opera even if you are a marginal opera...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“The LA Opera production is a lavish cartoon world…and the animals designer Gerald Scarfe creates are the most bewitching this side of Broadway’s The Lion King.” —Los Angeles Times
LA Opera’s celebrated original production returns, this time under the direction of James Conlon. Legendary English visual artist, satirist, and cartoonist Gerald Scarfe designed the fantastic sets and eyecatching costumes for this Peter Hall production. The Magic Flute is both a fanciful fairy tale and an allegory hinting at deeper mysteries. This ever-popular work has enchanted young and old alike for over two centuries.
