Follow the rise and fall of a star in Verdi’s grand romantic masterpiece La Traviata. Soprano Laquita Mitchell performs the iconic title role of Violetta, a famous Parisian courtesan who is consumed both by passion and a life-threatening illness. When she meets a handsome young noble named Alfredo, Violetta believes their love can triumph over the forces that threaten to tear them apart. Violetta, however, has only one inescapable fate — as La Traviata, the fallen woman.
