Music by Giuseppe Verdi | Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave
Sung in Italian with projected English translation

Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata, not seen at BLO in nearly a decade, returns in a glorious new production. The tale of Violetta, a worldly courtesan with all the men of Paris at her feet, takes a wrenching turn when she risks all for a chance at enduring love. Anya Matanovic makes her Boston Lyric Opera debut in the role opposite Weston Hurt as the father who will stop at nothing to protect his family’s honor. His son Alfredo loses and regains Violetta, leading to one of the greatest scenes of reconciliation in all of opera.

La Traviata contains mature themes. There will be some implied nudity in this production.
