“This mega-production deserves only three words: Fantastic! Fantastic! Fantastic!”
I’m giving away FIVE pairs of tickets to a very special reception and screening on September 19th of Verdi’s La Traviata by Opera Australia. If you haven’t yet seen it, you must. It’s one of the most beautiful operas in the world and this is wonderful opportunity for a truly unique NYC experience.
Verdi’s La Traviata shines in this spectacular production from Opera Australia, performed on a floating stage in the Sydney Harbor under the stars. The famous Sydney Opera House is the backdrop in this dramatic new staging, which features a nearly 30-foot chandelier suspended over the stage. Opera Insider raves: “This mega-production deserves only three words – Fantastic ! Fantastic ! Fantastic !” Visionary director Francescsa Zambello directs, with an “electrifying” Emma Matthews as Violetta, with Jonathan Summers and Gianluca Terranova rounding out the cast. (Stage Noise)
The film is in Italian with English subtitles, 2 hrs 40 mins including one intermission. It’s being shown as part of the Fall-Winter 2012 season of Opera in Cinema series on Wednesday, September 19th at The Bruno Walter Auditorium, 111 Amsterdam Avenue at 65th Street. The Reception will be from seven to eight o’clock followed by “La Traviata” Handa Opera from Sydney Harbour.
