“This production is a reminder that there are reasons why a classic is a joy forever.” - Georgia Straight
 

“There are Traviatas and there are Traviatas; Vancouver has seen many, and committed opera fans no doubt feel they know the work inside out. Wrong. There may have been more vocally ravishing Traviatas over the years, but it would be hard to imagine one with more dramatic punch.”- Vancouver Sun

 

Parisian courtesan Violetta leads a life of wild indulgence until she discovers the love of Alfredo, a true and good-hearted man. When their relationship threatens to disgrace his well-placed family, the couple is torn apart then reunited in forgiveness - tragically, too late.
