La traviata

Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901)

Maestro Christofer Macatsoris conducts the AVA Opera Orchestra

November 11–29, 2022

AVA opens its 88th opera season with Verdi’s La traviata. Plagued by sickness, Violetta finds love in Alfredo, but before long they are torn apart by betrayal. A “fallen woman”, she is forced to abandon her lover, until the truth comes out and they are reunited, if only for a moment. One of opera’s enduringly popular classics, Verdi’s La traviata has thrilled Philadelphia audiences with the tragic love story of Alfredo and Violetta for over 160 years.

Unless otherwise noted, all performances at 7:30 PM

Cast to be announced at a later time


The Lehigh University Zoellner Arts Center performance is underwritten by a generous contribution from Victoria Eckert Zoellner
