Florida Grand Opera. From Nov 15th through Dec 6th, 2008. A young courtesan is destined to die alone. Can she find redemption through the power of love? You'll simply love this spectacular new production of Verdi's La Traviata. Alternating in the role of Violetta are fast-rising Latina soprano stars Eglise Gutiérrez and Ailyn Pérez, who have graced the stages of The Met and Carnegie Hall.
Violetta Valéry is the most desired and captivating courtesan in the seductive Parisian demi-monde. Beautiful, charming and discreet, she fulfills the secret fantasies of Paris’s finest gentlemen but keeps her heart to herself. When at last she meets Alfredo and gives in to her feelings, Violetta learns that society has no place for a courtesan in love. You’ll be intoxicated by Verdi’s gorgeous music and by this new spectacular production directed by Bliss Hebert and designed by Allen Charles Klein.
