They left everything behind to be together. But the past has a way of catching up.
Violetta Valéry is the queen of Parisian nightlife for now, but she knows that life in the fast lane can't last forever. The arrival of a fresh-faced suitor offers her an unexpected taste of true love, until society’s disapproval threatens to tear them apart.
Rachel Willis-Sørensen, one of the most acclaimed American sopranos of her generation, returns as the glamorous Violetta, whose time is quickly running out. Rising star Liparit Avetisyan is the enamored Alfredo, with Kihun Yoon as his disapproving, controlling father. Verdi master James Conlon conducts one of opera’s most enduring tragedies in this vibrant and luxuriously rich new-to-L.A. production that shines the spotlight on Violetta’s tragic attempts to outrun her fate.
