Marta Domingo’s beautiful Art Deco reimagining of La Traviata updates to the action to the 1920s. A glamorous party girl captures the heart of a naïve young man. Together they trade the fast life for an idyllic love nest far from the city…until the unexpected arrival of his father threatens to tear them apart. The 2017 winner of Operalia, Adela Zaharia, makes her company debut as Violetta.
