Starring Natalie Dessay, Matthew Polenzani and Dmitri Hvorostovsky
Acclaimed French soprano Natalie Dessay makes her Met role debut as Violetta, the fallen woman who sacrifices her last chance for love. Matthew Polenzani co-stars as Alfredo Germont, a young man from a good family who is willing to risk everything for Violetta. Dmitri Hvorostovsky sings Giorgio Germont, Alfredo's father, who disapproves of Violetta's lifestyle but is moved by her plight. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads Verdi's romantic tragedy, one of the most-loved operas of all time, in Willy Decker's highly theatrical production, a hit when it premiered at the Met in 2010.
Soprano Deborah Voigt hosts the performance.
