“La Traviata” by Giuseppe Verdi
NY Met Opera live (“Simulcast”)
Gaumont Pathe Opera (Cote Capucines),
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. Verdi’s Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s richly textured new production, featuring a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing the role of Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelsey is Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love, solitude, and happiness.
Too late, Alfredo discovers his father’s betrayal and rushes to the side of the dying Violetta. And we are treated to one of those operatic miracles where a dying soprano sings beautifully until she dies in her true love’s arms.
