“A sublimely memorable experience… inviting both singer and audience to experience the power of words and music more directly.”
—Opera News

New York City Opera comes to BAM with Verdi's masterpiece La traviata in a new production by acclaimed director Jonathan Miller (St. Matthew Passion, BAM 2009 Spring Season; Il matrimonio segreto, BAM 2008 Spring Season). Miller's take on this tragic tale of love and life-both lost and found-focuses on the psychological drama between the characters, powerfully conveyed with stark realism by an outstanding cast.

Brooklyn native Laquita Mitchell, hailed by The New York Times for her "powerful" voice, stars as opera's most fascinating heroine opposite Canadian tenor David Pomeroy in his City Opera debut.

Set and Costume Designed by Isabella Bywater
Lighting Designed by Robert Wierzel
