Wonderful production, Verdi at his best, Great costumes and lighting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you wish to hear one of Verdi's greatest operas with wonderful singing, great music and fantastic production.

Don't see it if you don't like operas. I recommend this opera for those who don't go to opera. The characters are great and so is the music. Read more

Intelligent, Great singing, Exquisite, Enchanting

See it if A first rate production of one of the best operas. It's light and fun and then suddenly it's infuriating and deeply, wonderfully sad.

Don't see it if It's not as feminist as it could be and the main plot point that makes it so tragic isn't ever REALLY explained. But it's still fantastic.

Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting, Fabulous singing

Don't see it if You are not a fan of traditional opera and like the NEW atonal productions of what is called Opera, but is NOT Opera!

Must see, Excruciating, Disappointing, Great singing, Great acting

See it if you want to hear a prima donna at the height of her powers. Nadine Sierra is a vocal wonder and great actress, she makes this worth seeing

Don't see it if you want a set that makes any sense or a strong supporting cast. Other than Sierra and the orchestra this production is just serviceable Read more

The Observer
October 28th, 2022

"Mayer’s production has always looked a little more like Disney’s 'La Traviata' to me—the golden vines that wind about the stage and garish colors frame the story as we are jumping into a fairy tale. If it’s a fairy tale, however, it’s also a ghost story.."

"There will be many opportunities to see 'La traviata' this season with three different casts and conductors. This performance set the benchmark high."
