Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Piave

Elegant. Emotional. Unforgettable. How much would you sacrifice for love? Violetta holds court at every party in Paris, toasting to high-class pleasures alongside affluent men. But beneath the grandeur lies a fatal disease. Will her time run out before she knows true love? Verdi’s timeless story of fate and sacrifice, renowned for its soaring arias and heart-wrenching ending, proves how “love is the heartbeat of the universe.”

Francesca Zambello’s “stunning new 4-star production” (DC Theatre Scene) features a grand set design and elaborate turn-of-the-century Paris costumes by Tony Award®–winning designer Jess Goldstein. From the famous brindisi drinking song to the heart-wrenching “Addio del passato” aria, La traviata spins an impressive outpouring of melody to convey Violetta’s unforgettable plight.

Four internationally heralded singers will make their Seattle Opera debuts in the opera’s lead roles: Armenian soprano Mané Galoyan, praised for her “emotionally intense and touchingly fragile” portrayals (Bachtrack), and South African soprano Vuvu Mpofu, called “one in a million” by OperaWire, appear as Violetta, while tenors Rame Lahaj (“hardly to be outdone,” Los Angeles Times) and Duke Kim (2021 grand finals winner, Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions) fill the role of Alfredo.
