One of opera's most enduring love stories, La traviata is a glorious work that deserves to be revisited time after time.
In this sumptuous production, set in the 1920s, Violetta is a music hall artist – beautiful, sought after, but not quite respectable. As her tragedy unfolds, we marvel again at Verdi's compassionate and extravagantly melodic portrayal of a woman who isn't allowed to fit in.
This historic five-company co-production will be staged for audiences across Canada over the next three seasons. Not to be missed.
WIth the Victoria Symphony and the Pacific Opera Chorus
