Giuseppe Verdi’s beautiful masterpiece portrays the intimate story of one of opera’s most beloved and tragic heroines, Violetta Valery, “the fallen woman”. The soaring arias, “Sempre Libera”, “Libiamo né lieti Calici” and “Addio del Passato”, to name a few, capture and transport the audience in what is considered Verdi’s finest opera. It is, by some margin, the most performed opera in the world.
Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave

Audience members will be moved by some of the most popular songs in all of musical theatre including “Some Enchanted Evening”, “If I Loved You?” and “Younger than Springtime”.
