La Traviata – The Gillioz Theatre, March 15 at 7:30 pm & March 17 at 2:00 pm
By Giuseppe Verdi; libretto by Francesco Maria Piave
Directed by Jeff Carney; Conducted by Amy Muchnick
SRO honors the 100th Anniversary of the composer’s death with his masterpiece, La Traviata. Originally set in the mid-1800s, this opera gem tells the heartbreaking story of the love affair between Alfredo Germont, a gentleman of Parisian society, and Violetta Valéry, a Parisian courtesan. Director Jeff Carney, transports this tale of “the woman who strays” to 1920s Paris, a time cascading with luscious distractions and exuberant style. Verdi’s breathtaking score reveals the exalting beauty and fragility of a love caught in the crossfires of social pressures and mortal illness.
