as usual, WBO delivers a great experience at a bargain price (meaning their full price). They make the most of their cost and space limitations with maximum creativity, and are able to attract great voices. I would encourage Goldstar members...continued

Description

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.
