Description

by Giuseppe Verdi

Based on the novel La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Verdi’s immortal telling of the story of the Lady of the Camellias is an opera lovers’ dream, full of passion, sacrifice, love, death, and redemption. The glamorous courtesan Violetta has finally found real love in the embrace of Alfredo. She must give him up for the sake of honor, and unknowing, he heartlessly denounces her in a scene of public humiliation. They reunite on her death bed and she passes into eternity knowing that she at last knew true love.

Starring: Elizabeth Futral (Violetta), Eric Margiore (Alfredo), Jason Stearns (Germont), Colleen Daly (Flora), Suzanne Chadwick (Annina), Rolando Sanz (Gastone), Kenneth Mattice (Baron), Jimi James (Marquis d’Obigny), Brendan Cooke (Grenvil)

Featuring the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) conducted by Steven White. The production will be directed by Crystal Manich with opulent sets and costumes from Lyric Opera Chicago.
