Opera San Luis Obispo presents Giuseppe Verdi's “La Traviata,” bringing the most frequently performed opera of all time back to SLO audiences for the first time since 1994! The beautiful Parisian courtesan Violetta Valery throws a lavish party at her house where she meets her true love Alfredo Germont. While the two fall in love, Violetta must come to terms with the lavish lifestyle she has grown accustomed to serving, while Alfredo deals with Violetta's history as a threat to his family’s pristine name. Following his thrilling OperaSLO directorial debut last October, Zach Johnson returns to lead an internationally acclaimed cast of opera stars in a new glorious and grand production featuring Civic Ballet San Luis Obispo and choreography by Drew Silvaggio, with elaborate sets and costumes, all accompanied by the OperaSLO Grand Orchestra conducted by Brian Asher Alhadeff, OperaSLO Artistic and General Director.
Synopsis, artist bios, and other concert information available online at operaslo.org. A pre-opera talk by OperaSLO Board Member Dr. John Frey will begin one hour before curtain at both performances.
