I didn't have the highest expectations since it's a smaller opera company but I was pleasantly surprised. Admittedly, the stage is on the small side and the sets are simple, but the voices of Violetta (Karen Slack), Alfredo (Jesus Leon) and Giorgio (Zachary Gordin) were superb! Gordin, in particular, was impressive. The acoustics at Lucie Stern Theatre are quite good for opera.
This was my first time to a performance by West Bay Opera and I will be back. I highly recommend this show! It felt like a steal at Goldstar's discounted price of $28 (regular price is $45-$55).
Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave
Conductor John Kendall Bailey
Director Richard Harrell
Sung in Italian, with English titles
Violetta, a Parisian courtesan, falls in love with Alfredo. She leaves high society behind for a blissful life with him in the country. But their happiness is short lived. Alfredo’s father convinces her to abandon his son, in order to save the family’s honor. Gravely ill and destitute, she lives long enough to see Alfredo finally return to her and dies in his arms. Verdi’s most famous opera, La traviata features some of the best known arias and ensembles in the entire opera repertoire, in a score of unparalleled elegance and great dramatic sweep.
