La Dame aux Camélias

Novel and stage play by Alexandre Dumas, fils. Later adapted by Giuseppe Verdi to La Traviata. 

Tickets to the Metropolitan Opera. Christmas gift from our fils. Parterre box.

New production with James Levine’s replacement. Montreal’s Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Unique deathbed retrospective one venue set, it brings all of Violetta’s life into her room with the requisite pathos and an added Ballet Jeté ensemble just because. Bavarian soprano Diana Damrau cajoled Violetta’s lacrime in a controlled splendor. The crowd loved it and her.
