Why See LA Opera - La Traviata?
Perhaps he is the one
One of the very best in the repertoire, Verdi's La Traviata is a sweeping love story set against the backdrop of decadent Paris high society where the celebrated courtesan Violetta eschews her wealthy suitors for the simple life with poor Alfredo. Updated to the Art Deco period, this LA Opera production is bursting with magnificent sets and lavish costumes that uphold Verdi's soaring score which still captivates after 170 years.
The story of La Traviata
As one of the most beautiful courtesans of Paris, the alluring Violetta has many admirers but has let none of her wealthy suitors near her heart, preferring their generosity with their wallets to their baser attentions. It is in this world she meets Alfredo, a handsome yet penniless member of the bourgeois who wins her love and whisks her away to a countryside idyll in the hope of escaping her past life. Can their passion survive the reality of poverty, reputation and illness, or will everything they have fought to flee overwhelm the strongest emotion of them all?
