UNL OPERA ON TOUR: Verdi's La Traviata

La Traviata is one of the most beloved theatrical works of all time, combining an exquisitely romantic story with
gloriously memorable music that unfurls one heart stopping beautiful melody after another. A treat for all
audiences, La Traviata appeals to everyone from opera newcomers to the most enthusiastic aficionados.

Verdi's vibrant masterpiece contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments. La Traviata tells
the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against
the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. When
his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits in an act of heart
wrenching self-sacrifice, making her one of opera’s most glorious heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and
emotional depth.

UNL Opera's touring production of La Traviata features an evocative projection design created by the University's
Emerging Media Arts Faculty.

Staged by UNL Professor Suna Gunther, the opera will be presented with sumptuous
costumes and beautiful singing by UNL Opera voice students, accompanied by a chamber ensemble enhancing the
intimacy of the story. The opera will be sung in its original Italian, with English subtitles. The audience will
understand every word and feel all the emotional heart tugging from this most iconic and romantic operas ever

La Traviata is sponsored by: James C. and Rhonda Seacrest Tour Nebraska Opera Fund and The Glenn Korff School of Music.

La Traviata is also a gift to the community from Sen. John Stinner.
