Why See San Francisco Opera: La Traviata?

Verdi's Tragic Masterpiece

Verdi's towering La Traviata returns to the San Francisco Opera for the first time since 2014. A tragic love story that explores the suffocating constraints of polite society, the story is centered on the beautiful courtesan Violetta Valery, who sacrifices her reputation and wealth when she decides to move from Paris to the countryside with her lover Alfredo.

First performed in 1853, La Traviata can be said to be Verdi's most intimate work, drawing on social issues that were contemporary to him at the time, and is now the most performed opera in the world. This San Francisco staging is conducted by Nicola Luisotti, and boasts three singers making their company debut, including soprano Aurelia Florian as Violetta Valery, a role she's previously played to great acclaim in Berlin, Munich and Oslo.
