La Traviata

Tomorrow, on BBC 3, is a radio encore of La Traviata at 1:00 pm, from the Royal Opera House in London. Tomorrow, I’m going to listen, then post a review along with a This Year in Opera Post to commemorate 2011. The encore stars Piotr Beczala and Ailyn Perez (Stephen Costello’s wife) as the lovers Alfredo and Violetta. Simon Keenlyside sings Germont, who tears the couple apart. Patrick Lange conducts Verdi’s score. Go to the BBC La Traviata page by clicking here. Here are some pictures from the website.

Perez, in her role debut, and Beczala.


Keenlyside as Giorgio Germont

Perez as Violetta right before she dies. Are those consumptive blood stains on her pillow?
