Annapolis Opera Presents Verdi's La Traviata

Annapolis Opera Presents Verdi's La Traviata

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Annapolis Opera presents Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata on Friday, March 16 (8pm) and Sunday, March 18 (3pm). Both performances will be held at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, located at 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, Maryland 21401.

The production will be prefaced by a series of Opera Insight lectures, exploring the stories behind La Traviata, its cultural and historical context as well as the musical, dramatic and vocal challenges of the performance. The Opera Insight Series, sponsored by Ginger Cove, will be led by Professor Thomas May, tutor at St. John's College in Annapolis; Dr. Martin Wasserman, former Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene; and opera authority Nancie Kennedy, former faculty at the Eastman School of Music and the Peabody Conservatory and Annapolis Opera Advisory Board member. The Opera Insight Series is free to the public. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended and can be made online or by contacting the opera office.

"We are extremely excited to bring La Traviata to the stage in our 45th season," said Kathy Swekel, General Director at Annapolis Opera. "We believe that the Opera Insight Series leading up to the performances will allow audience members to gain a deeper look into one of the greatest operas ever written, and understand why it is still relevant to us today."

Inspired by Alexandre Dumas' play La Dame aux Camélias, La Traviata shows us the tragic struggle of a Parisian courtesan, Violetta, who is torn between her desire for true love and retaining her fashionable way of life. Despite Giuseppe Verdi proclaiming the premiere a fiasco, the opera has become one of the most beloved and produced works in the opera canon.
