Szene aus »La traviata«

After her two acclaimed Dresden productions of »The Golden Dragon« and »The Bald Soprano« (both in Semper Zwei), Barbora Horáková Joly returns to the Semperoper this season with a new staging of Verdi’s »La traviata«. On 2 October 2022, the Czech director will transform the Semperoper stage into a scintillating world inspired by the pleasure palaces and elegant French salons of the 19th century, where the premiere audience can enjoy Verdi’s masterpiece about love and death performed under the baton of Leonardo Sini.

Soprano Nina Minasyan will sing the role of Violetta Valéry. She will be joined on the premiere evening by other star guests including the Armenian tenor Liparit Avetisyan, one of today’s leading tenors in Italian repertoire, as Alfredo, and the Russian baritone Alexey Markov as his father Giorgio Germont.
