La Traviata is one of the most beloved theatrical works of all time, combining an exquisitely romantic story with gloriously memorable music that unfurls one heart stopping beautiful melody after another. A treat for all audiences, La Traviata appeals to everyone from opera newcomers to the most enthusiastic afficionados.

Verdi’s vibrant masterpiece contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments. La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits in an act of heart wrenching self-sacrifice, making her one of opera’s most glorious heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth.

UNL Opera’s touring production of La Traviata features an evocative projection design created by the University’s Emerging Media Arts Faculty. Staged by UNL Professor Suna Gunther, the opera will be presented with sumptuous costumes and beautiful singing by UNL Opera voice students, accompanied by a chamber ensemble enhancing the intimacy of the story. The opera will be sung in its original Italian, with English supertitles. The audience will understand every word and feel all the emotional heart tugging from this most iconic and romantic operas ever composed.

This production of La Traviata is sponsored by the James C. and Rhonda Seacrest Tour Nebraska Opera Fund.

The Lincoln performance is free and open to the public.
