Verdi’s La Traviata
Newberry Opera House presents Verdi’s La Traviata January 16. Meaning “fallen woman,” La Traviata tells the story of courtesan Violetta Valery. After recovering from a bout of tuberculosis, she meets Alfredo Germont, who confesses his admiration for her. His admiration of a scandalous woman disgraces Germont’s family and creates tension and a web of lies and betrayal. La Traviata is full of twists and turns, tragedy, drama, and spine-tingling arias.
