Fame. Power. Fortune. Violetta Valéry has it all as Paris’ most admired courtesan. But never. All that changes when a naive young man enters her Paris salon and offers her a romance full of tenderness and compassion. But can their love ever be free from the social stigmas of her past?
Music Director Eun Sun Kim leads the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and chorus in Shawna Lucey’s sumptuous new vision of Verdi’s masterpiece—the first new production of La Traviata built by San Francisco Opera’s own craftspeople since 1987.
