Portland Opera Launches 2018/19 Season With LA TRAVIATA

Oct 05, 2018 97

Portland Opera is thrilled to begin the 2018/19 season with Verdi's La Traviata. A crown jewel of grand opera, La Traviata tells the story of the brilliant and beautiful Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry as she falls in love with Alfredo Germont. Haunted by her reputation and illness, Violetta navigates sexual politics and confronts societal expectations as she braves a broken heart.

Portland Opera will present four performances of La Traviata on November 2, 4 (matinee), 8, and 10 at the Keller Auditorium. "I am very excited to begin our new season with a traditional production of a work by one of my favorite composers, Giuseppe Verdi," says General Director Christopher Mattaliano. "This magnificent score and story are deeply human, and although it was composed 165 years ago, the situations and characters continue to resonate with audiences today."
