Giuseppe Verdi’s La traviata—the fallen woman is a compelling tale of love, intrigue, money and power in 19th century France. Experience the heart wrenching story of courtesan Violetta Valéry, played by Pittsburgh favorite Danielle Pastin, last seen here in 2015’s Così fan tutte. Like so many of Verdi’s works, La traviata explores grand themes through intimate family drama. Alfredo Germont wins Violetta’s love and his father’s displeasure. His father, going behind Alfredo’s back, then coerces Violetta into breaking up with Alfredo. Alfredo erroneously believes she loves someone else and denounces her, leaving them both grief-stricken. Will they reconcile before it’s too late? From the rousing “Brindisi” drinking song to touching arias, La traviata’s singing and music are sure to delight.

Christian Capocaccia conducts; Chas Rader Shieber directs.

Run Time: 2 Hours, 43 minutes, including 2 intermissions.
