Renée Fleming and Rolando Villazón star in this lavish 2006 production by the Los Angeles Opera of Verdi's masterpiece La Traviata. Both singers, world-renowned for their portrayals of the doomed lovers, are joined by the great Verdi baritone Renato Bruson, and the conductor James Conlon.

"Violetta has lately become one of Fleming's signature roles, and she acted the part as compellingly as she sang it, which was warmly, with sparkling top notes and an ease with the vocal line that any singer would envy."
– Los Angeles Times

La Traviata (“The Fallen Woman”) premiered at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice in 1853. It is one of Verdi’s most popular works, and the role of its heroine, the courtesan Violetta, is known as one of the most challenging in the soprano repertory.  One of the signatures of the work is its melodic waltz tunes which evoke the Parisian high life and add an intense, yet beautiful, melancholy as Violetta’s time begins to run out.
