La Traviata Produced By Houston Grand Opera

La traviata

Houston Grand Opera (HGO) will present two free performances of Verdi’s La traviata, one of the world’s most beloved operas, at Miller Outdoor Theatre on Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20.

Houston Grand Opera (HGO) will present two free performances of Verdi’s La traviata, one of the world’s most beloved operas, at Miller Outdoor Theatre on Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20. Each spring HGO’s popular outdoor performances allow Houstonians to experience superlative opera in a casual, relaxed setting that’s appropriate for the entire family. This production of La traviata opened HGO’s 2022-23 season to a sold-out, record-breaking audience; and now, operagoers and new audiences can once again experience award-winning director Arin Arbus’s production.

The impressive cast of La traviata will be led by soprano Meryl Dominguez as the doomed courtesan Violetta and tenor Ricardo Garcia as her lover Alfredo, with baritone Anthony Evans as Alfredo’s father Germont. HGO Resident Conductor Alex Amsel takes the podium for this sublime three-act tragedy about passionate lovers torn apart by family, classism, and deceit.

The opera runs for two hours and 25 minutes with two intermissions. It is sung in Italian with projected English translation.
