The University of Arizona Opera Theater presents its fall production, featuring Giuseppe Verdi’s “La Traviata.” Four performances will be offered in Crowder Hall, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 15, 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, November 18 at 3:00 p.m. A reception hosted by the Music Advisory Board will be held immediately following the opening night’s performance.

"La Traviata" is one of the most beloved and moving of Verdi's operas. Directed by Professor Charles Roe, this beautiful opera in three acts will feature the Arizona Symphony Orchestra and the Arizona Choir under the baton of Music Director Thomas Cockrell. The production will be presented fully staged and costumed, in its original Italian with English supertitles.

Synopsis by Quaintance Eaton: "At one of her brilliant supper parties, the beautiful but frail demimondaine, Violetta Valéry, meets the well-born Alfredo Germont, and for love of him abandons her feverish life of pleasure. Alfredo’s father intrudes on their idyllic existence in the country and, although realizing her sincerity, persists in his demand that Violetta renounce Alfredo. Violetta determines to make the sacrifice and departs, leaving only a note for Alfredo. She appears at a ball in Flora’s house on the arm of an old admirer, Baron Douphol, to the fury of Alfredo. The two men play at cards: Alfredo wins consistently. Unable to persuade Violetta to go with him, Alfredo insults her and is challenged by the Baron. Violetta becomes ill, and all her friends desert her, leaving her virtually penniless. Alfredo at last returns. His father has told him of Violetta’s renunciation, and urged him to seek her forgiveness. Overjoyed at the sight of him, Violetta attempts to rise. But it is too late. As Germont and the Doctor enter, Violetta dies in Alfredo’s arms."
