Love, wealth, and mortality collide in this celebrated production of La Traviata from the Royal Opera House, starring celebrated soprano Renée Fleming.
Renee Fleming’s performance as the doomed courtesan Violetta Valery is not only virtuosic, with gleaming coloratura and effortless long lines, but also emotional, intimate and raw. America’s favorite prime donna stars alongside tenor Joseph Calleja as her lover Alfredo and bass Thomas Hampson as Germont. Richard Eyre’s production captures both the ostentatious glitz of high society and the picturesque French countryside in this audience favorite.
