This weekend sees the LA premiere of a new production of Verdi’s classic opera La Traviata. The miraculous Rachel Willis-Sorenson, who knocked us out at last fall’s Otello, returns to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion take on the role of Violetta de Valery, with Liparit Avetisvan as Alfredo Germont.

While this piece is never far from an LA audience, Shawna Lucey’s direction promises a spectacular new look. The orchestra will be under the direction of James Conlon, who proved again at Otello, he does Verdi real purdy. (Louis Lohraseb will conduct the April 18 performance.)

Into the den of twisted fate we go, LA, and in these inflationary times, we can all use a poetically rendered warning to avoid too much consumption.

La Traviata at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, April 6 through 26. Tickets, $63-399, available at the LA Opera Website.
