Vancouver Opera Presents La Traviata: Win Tickets

Comments 61 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver Opera‘s 2019-2020 season consists of three full-scale opera produc­tions and the 4th annual Vancouver Opera Festival. Vancouver Opera presents Verdi’s La Traviata, Rossini’s The Barber of Seville and the West Coast premiere of Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera, based on lyrics and music of Roger Waters’ The Wall.

Vancouver Opera Presents La Traviata

The season opens with the well-loved classic, La Traviata, in a sumptuous new production followed by another opera fan pleaser, The Barber of Seville.  The West Coast premiere of Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera, based on the lyrics and music of Roger Waters, opens the 4th annual Vancouver Opera Festival.

Vancouver Opera Presents La Traviata

Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre (650 Hamilton St, Vancouver)
When: October 17-27, 2019 with evening and matinée performances
Tickets: Available online now or by calling (604) 683-0222

La Traviata, a glorious work that deserves to be revisited time and again, was last performed eight years ago at Vancouver Opera. This perennial favourite has been given a brand-new look and features a terrific cast. In an unprecedented collaboration, five Canadian opera companies have joined forces to pro­duce lavish sets and costumes inspired by the decadent music hall scene of 1920s Paris. The production, directed by Alain Gauthier and designed by Christina Poddubiuk, has already made stops in Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Victoria and will go on to Montreal after Vancouver.

The Vancouver Opera cast includes Canadian Emily Dorn as Violetta, a famous Parisian courtesan who is consumed both by love and a life-threatening illness. Tenor Andrew Haji, who delighted audiences as Nemorino in last year’s production of L’Elisir d’amore, is the love-struck Alfredo. Canadian conductor Yves Abel, whose international career spans more than twenty years–including appearances at the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House and the Vienna State Opera–makes his Vancouver Opera debut.

Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES™ projected above the stage
