risking it all for love
Officially the most performed opera worldwide, La Traviata is Verdi's twisting love story that explores class, reputation, and devotion, with heartbreaking consequences. Directed by the iconic Francesca Zambello, with costumes by Tony winner Jess Goldstein and stunning sets from Peter J. Davison, this Seattle Opera production Verdi's classic is set to sizzle at the McCaw Hall in spring 2023.
What is the story?
Adapted from the novel The Lady of The Camellias by Alexander Dumas, La Traviata is the tale of Paris' most winning courtesan Violetta Valery and the honest nobleman Alfredo who finds himself lost to her charms and manages to persuade her to move to the country with him.
But abandoning her life of kept luxury proves easier said than done and soon the besotted couple finds the outside world encroaching on their love nest and their reputation has spread much further than they hoped...It's about risking everything for love, even your life.
