Explore Different Interests with a Tear-Jerking Operatic Performance Like No Other

Get whisked away to 19th century Paris during one night of unbelievable operatic performances! Join OPERA San Antonio at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts to experience Giuseppe Verdi's classic tale of love and a noble heart, La Traviata, on September 13th and 15th.

Within the social whirl of sophisticated Paris, the courtesan Violetta lives purely for pleasure but longs for true love. She finds the right man in Alfredo, but their happiness is cut short. At his father's insistence, Violetta leaves Alfredo for the sake of his family. Her spirit broken, her health shattered, Violetta now lives only with the hope that Alfredo will return to her. La Traviata gives us one of opera's most glorious heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth who sacrifices her beloved for the sake of high society.

The esteemed production is staged with sets and costumes from Lyric Opera of Chicago and features renowned singers Amanda Woodbury and Weston Hurt, as well as Metropolitan Opera singer and San Antonio native, David Portillo. Orchestra support will be provided by the San Antonio Symphony and Maestro Francesco Milioto.

This world-class production will take place at the H-E-B Performance hall at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 13th, and Saturday, September 15th. Tickets start at $35 and may be purchased online or at the box office.
