‘La Traviata’ at Met Opera
Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023
German director Willy Decker’s controversial 2011 remount of this Verdi favorite is again revived with new talent. Bulgarian soprano Sonya Yoncheva shares the role of Violetta with Carmen Giannattasio. Michael Fabiano and Atalla Ayan share Alfredo while Thomas Hampson, George Petean and Plácido Domingo sing Giorgio. Nicola Luisotti conducts. Stark, modern, and engaging, Decker’s staging is refreshingly successful.
