The Parisian courtesan Violetta leaves a life of extravagance when she falls in love with Alfredo. But soon she is forced to make a terrible choice. With showpiece arias such as “Sempre libera” and its touching story, La traviata is one of the most beloved works in the operatic canon. After 10 years, the opera returns to the Glimmerglass stage in a stunning co-production with Washington National Opera.
“I believe this opera is musically and dramatically just about perfect. Every character we encounter sings music that is thrilling, dramatic and true to their soul.” – Francesca Zambello, director
