March -April. La Traviata Returns to the Met
A scandal when it first debuted, Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata went on to become the composer’s best-loved opera. Featuring some of the world’s most iconic operatic moments, this bittersweet love story centers around the beautiful, pleasure-loving but frail courtesan Violetta Valéry, who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. A milestone in opera history that’s sure to melt the coldest heart, Verdi’s timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice features exquisite arias like “Sempre libera” and the mournful “Addio del passato.” Nicola Luisotti conducts this gorgeously rendered production at The Met.
