Sung in Italian. Two hours and 55 minutes, including two intermissions.

traviata_lao15In the giddy, glitzy world of the Roaring Twenties, a naive young man falls head over heels for a glamorous party girl. Together they trade the fast life for an idyllic love nest far from the city…until an unexpected visitor threatens to tear them apart.

One of opera’s greatest romances, La Traviata returns in Marta Domingo’s dazzlingly updated Art Deco-inspired production. Nino Machaidze, one of LA Opera’s favorite leading ladies, returns as Violetta, with Arturo Chacón-Cruz as her handsome Alfredo. The incomparable Plácido Domingo returns in one of his newest signature roles, as a father determined to do the right thing.
