by Giuseppe Verdi
Jan 25, 2019 - Jan 27, 2019 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall
In the salon of Violetta’s Parisian apartment, any cause to celebrate inspires a lavish party. But when Violetta unexpectedly meets her first real love, Alfredo, will moral obligations of society and a life-threatening illness keep her from the promise of true love?
The first opera of the 2018-2019 season is Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata, the heartbreaking story of a Parisian courtesan’s impossible choice between love and moral obligation. Tenor Alexey Tatarintsev will return to Palm Beach Opera as Alfredo Germont. He recently appeared in the company’s production of Rigoletto. Appearing on the Palm Beach Opera stage for the first time, Baritone Massimo Cavalletti, who recently debuted with the Paris Opera, will play Giorgio Germont.
The cast and orchestra will be led by Verdi specialist Maestro Antonello Allemandi, who previously conducted the company’s internationally acclaimed production of Rigoletto.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage.
