La traviata · Giuseppe Verdi

La traviata – Giuseppe Verdi 

Sponsored with a generous gift from Judith Broudy

Conductor: Christofer Macatsoris with the AVA Opera Orchestra

Stage Director: Jeffrey Marc Buchman

Plagued by sickness, Violetta finds love in Alfredo, but before long they are torn apart by betrayal. A "fallen woman", she is forced to abandon her lover, until the truth comes out and they are reunited, if only for a moment.

One of opera’s enduringly popular classics, Verdi’s La traviata has thrilled Philadelphia audiences with the tragic love story of Alfredo and Violetta for 160 years. This season Jeffrey Marc Buchman (who directed AVA’s recent productions of Don Giovanni and Die Zauberflöte) returns as stage director with Maestro Christofer Macatsoris leading the AVA Opera Orchestra.
