Keller Auditorium

La Traviata

Conducted by Christopher Larkin
Directed by Elise Sandell

A POIGNANT PORTRAIT OF LOVE AND LOSS À PARIS.

A crown jewel of grand opera, La Traviata tells the story of the brilliant and beautiful Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry as she falls deeply in love with Alfredo Germont. Haunted by her reputation and illness, Violetta navigates sexual politics and confronts societal expectations as she braves the most broken of hearts.

ABOUT OUR PRODUCTION

Performed in Italian with English captions.
Approximately 3 hours, including two intermissions.

Classic sets and costumes honor tradition on the grandest scale. Romanian soprano Aurelia Florian, whose performance of Violetta at the San Francisco Opera was called “incandescent” by the San Francisco Chronicle, makes her Portland Opera debut as our tour de force heroine. Tenor Jonathan Boyd returns to Portland Opera as Alfredo.

ACCESSIBILITY

The performance of La Traviata on November 4 at 2PM will include an audio description of the visual and physical events on stage for patrons who are blind or have low vision. For patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, each performance is visually translated with English text projected above the stage. If you require wheelchair, ADA, or companion seating, please let our Patron Services team know when you purchase tickets, so that we can ensure your visit to the opera is an excellent one.
