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."
