Composed by Giuseppe Verdi

Featuring one of the most demanding, sumptuous, and recognizable scores of all time, Virginia Opera concludes its season with Giuseppe Verdi’s tours de force La Traviata. Set amidst the pleasure-loving and decadent French aristocracy of the 19th century, Verdi’s three-act tragic and romantic opera follows a sophisticated courtesan, Violetta, who falls in love with a man she cannot have, Alfredo Germont. With spectacular party scenes, poignant, intimate moments, gripping emotion, and the gorgeous soprano aria “Sempre Libera,” La Traviata will hold you spellbound from the first to last note. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
