Romance! In-Laws! Disaster!

Come experience Verdi’s heartbreaking masterpiece, and see the opera for yourself that moved Julia Roberts’ character to tears in Pretty Woman.

The beautiful, but ill, courtesan Violetta Valéry falls in love with the upper-class gentleman Alfredo Germont and trades her life of pleasure for an idyllic life in the country with him. When pressure from Alfredo’s father to renounce him becomes too much, she flees to her former life, leaving only a note for her love. But Alfredo’s love will not be denied, and he isn’t going to stand aside as he sees her on the arm of another man.

• Stars Anya Matanovic, praised for her “power” and “rich, warm soprano” (Utah Arts Review) as Violetta Valéry, the young Parisian courtesan who is conflicted by her love, lifestyle, and health.
• Tenor Rafael Moras makes his Utah Opera debut as Alfredo Germont, Violetta’s love interest
• Metropolitan Opera-regular Michael Chioldi, one of the most sought-after dramatic baritones of his generation, returns as Alfredo’s father
• Features Utah Opera’s newly refurbished and ever-popular production designed by Peter Dean Beck with costumes by Susan Memmott Allred

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
