Make Your Summer Sensational!
Giuseppe Verdi's | La Traviata
Wadsworth Auditorium Mainstage
Sung in Italian with projected English supertitles
The fashionable and provocative Violetta holds a grand party in her Paris salon celebrating her recovery from a long illness. The persuasive Alfredo enters, confesses his true love and… they set forth for a quiet life in the country. Enter Germont, a father in distress for his son’s choice in a woman of questionable character….and the rest, as they say, is what makes opera, OPERA!
Fallen Woman, Smitten Suitor, Meddling Father – Opera in all its glory!

The orchestra and cast of performers take center stage in this concert-style music celebration that follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the 20th century to the present. The story unfolds in musical numbers including classics like “Blue Skies,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “God Bless America” and many more. Both heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, this retrospective is a true tribute to an American legend.
