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

The music of this opera is quite dissonant a la Schoenberg. It took time to get used to it. The story is intense and rather dark as far as human behavior is concerned. But I I found it intriguing. The sets and lighting are spectacular. And the acting and singing of the leads Anja Kampe and Robert Brubaker were strong and delightful. Paula Correia
Quotes & Highlights
“…vacillates between melodies of Mediterranean grace and textures of otherworldly complexity…One scene melts into another with cinematic ease.” —The New Yorker
“affecting and sympathetic” —The New York Times (on Robert Brubaker in the role of Alviano in the Salzburg Festival performance of Die Gezeichneten)
An unlikely love triangle plays out amidst a group of decadent nobles, who are marked by lust, branded by depravity and stigmatized for their own unspeakable acts. The mystery of the paradise garden island, with its secret love grotto, climaxes in a shocking revelation. This voluptuously evocative work springs to vivid life under the baton of James Conlon and stage direction of the internationally celebrated Ian Judge. Anja Kampe, (Fidelio, Il Tabarro and Die Walküre) takes the part of the work’s main love interest, Carlotta. Robert Brubaker makes his LA Opera debut as the tortured Alviano. Returning LA Opera favorites are James Johnson (The Dwarf and The Birds), and Martin Gantner (Tannhäuser).
