LA TRAVIATA

JUBILEE AUDITORIUM
SUNG IN ITALIAN WITH PROJECTED ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Verdi's grand romantic masterpiece

Edmonton Opera's new production of La Traviata combines spectacle, passion, drama, and thrilling music to tell the story of Violetta, a famous Parisian courtesan who is consumed both by love and a life-threatening illness. Don't miss the opera that inspired the blockbuster film Moulin Rouge!

Co-commissioned by five of Canada’s leading opera companies, our historic new Traviata offers a level of spectacle and artistry to match the grandeur of Verdi’s music, including timeless favourites such as 'Sempre libera' and 'Brindisi' (the drinking song).

"La Traviata returns to Edmonton on a stage as grand as it gets and with a talented cast to suit. Giuseppe Verdi’s tale of a terminally ill, delight-seeking courtesan overcome by her first true love does not disappoint as the opener to Edmonton Opera’s 55th season."
