La Traviata preview from San Francisco Opera
"A time of excess and excitement, of living for the moment and flaunting newfound freedoms, the Jazz Age makes an unexpected but perfect setting for La Traviata. Verdi's eternally popular opera tells the tale of a conflicted courtesan, her devoted lover and his disapproving father. Stunning singing actresses Anna Netrebko and Elizabeth Futral, and rising star Ailyn Pérez share the title role in this critically acclaimed production. Donald Runnicles conducts the emotionally evocative, marvelously melodious score. "
