The most irresistible courtesan in opera - onstage at the Winspear for the very first time-in this lavish and lovely production from Florida Grand Opera! Set in 19th century Paris, where the young heir to a distinguished family name falls passionately in love with a woman of uncertain virtue. Will she listen to his father's pleas and abandon the only man who can truly touch her heart, in order to save him? The Dallas Opera has assembled a staggering cast that includes tenor James Valenti as the romantic suitor, bass - baritone Laurent Naouri as his resolute father and-continuing in the footsteps of the legendary Maria Callas, who first brought this role to the Dallas Opera stage in 1958-Greek soprano Myrtò Papatanasiu in her American debut as Violetta Valéry, "The Fallen Woman." Glorious music, poignant romance and a "Verdi" tearful ending to remind us why we love opera today, tomorrow, and forever! Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
