Fathom Events is set to present encore screenings of Verdi’s “La Traviata” from the Metropolitan Opera on Feb. 15, 2023.
The opera stars Nadine Sierra, Stephen Costello, and Luca Salsi with Daniele Callegari conducting Michael Mayer’s production. Renée Fleming hosts the performance.
The encore screening will take place at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. local time at cinemas worldwide.
Of the fall 2022 performances, The Philadelphia Inquirer noted that “Spontaneity, freshness, and originality … This goes to the top of my ‘Traviata’ pantheon.”
The Metropolitan Opera is set to revive “La Traviata” later this season in the same production. Angel Blue takes on the role of Violetta Valéry alongside Dmytro Popov and Artur Rucinski. The company recently revived the production with Ermonela Jaho as Violetta with OperaWire noting that “[Jaho’s] not playing Violetta, she is Violetta.”
