This world premiere, Venice, Teatro la Fenice, 1853. Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire. Seats are in Balcony Prime Rows A, B, C. Free time on your own in Columbus Circle or nearby Rockefeller Center.
