Worldly courtesan Violetta has grown tired of her dissolute life. When the pure-hearted Alfredo declares his love for her, she leaves everything behind to live with him, until the fear of family scandal threatens to tear apart the young lovers and everything they hold dear.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin makes his debut as the new Met Musical Director by conducting Verdi’s timeless tragedy La Traviata. Directed by Michael Mayer, this new production features a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Diana Damrau is the doomed heroine Violetta, opposite Juan Diego Flórez as her lover, Alfredo, and Quinn Kelsey as Alfredo’s protective father, Giorgio Germont.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
