Why See Atlanta Opera - La Traviata?
Be transported to the middle of a timeless romance in Verdi's masterful La Traviata, a work that remains one of the most beloved in the repertoire. Through swelling orchestration and unforgettable melodies the fateful love story of Violetta and Alfredo spirals through ardency to tragedy with captivating beauty and enduring charm.
What's the story?
As one of the most sought after 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 young man who wins her love and whisks her away to a countryside hideaway in the hope of escaping her past life. Can their passion survive the reality of poverty, familial pressure, reputation and illness, or will everything they have fought to flee overwhelm the strongest emotion of them all?
Zuzana Markova slips into the role of Violetta, with Mario Chang as the entranced Alfredo.
