La traviata

Oct. 21 - Nov. 6, 2022

Love is no game.

When the glamorous courtesan Violetta and the young Alfredo fall for each other, it’s as if nothing can tear them apart. But as tragedy unfolds over three sublime acts, family, classism, and deceit plague their relationship, and true love is shaken to its core. Verdi’s La traviata is one of the world’s most beloved—and performed—operas. This HGO revival features Grammy-award-winning soprano Angel Blue making her company debut as Violetta, a courtesan whose pursuit of love belies a creeping, fatal illness. Award-winning tenor Bryan Hymel, praised for the passion of his performances, sings the role of Alfredo, a young man whose love for Violetta is tested on all sides, and celebrated baritone Andrei Kymach makes his HGO debut as Alfredo’s father Giorgio. Award-winning director Arin Arbus returns to HGO, and conductor Matthew Aucoin makes his company debut. 

A co-production with Lyric Opera of Chicago and Canadian Opera Company.
