Verdi's thoughts on La Traviata

Tuesday, February 22

“La Traviata last night a failure. My fault or the singers'? Time will tell." Verdi wrote this to his friend the day after the premier of La Traviata. Time has told that he performed for a fickle audience who were unhappy about the age and weight of Violetta. In 1854, one year later, the performance received favorable reviews and today is one of the top three operas. So prepare as this famous score is coming to MN Opera pronto! With a great cast including Elizabeth Futral and Georgia Jarman as Violetta.

Check out Renee Fleming and Renato Bruson. I promise these singers are not failures!
