Preview - La Traviata
One of the most treasured operas of all time, La Traviata is told in waltz time, bringing the audience the life of the most beautiful woman in Paris. Dancing away her days, Violetta survives on the generosity of the wealthiest men of France, living in luxury until she meets Alfredo Germont, who, having nothing, offers her love instead. For a short spring, she and Alfredo live an idyllic life in the country until his father convinces her that their relationship is harming Alfredo’s sister. She gives him up and returns to a man who has kept her in the past, and everything crashes down around her. Giuseppe Verdi created one of the world’s most successful works for the stage when he penned this opera.
This one-hour preview is free, and it will take place in the Rehearsal Hall on the third floor of the California Theatre. Moderated by Opera San Jose General Director Larry Hancock, it will include a lecture and performances by OSJ artists.
