The Teatro dell’Opera di Roma will continue its 2020-21 season with a new production of Verdi’s “La Traviata.”

The new filmed production will be directed by Mario Martone and conducted by Daniele Gatti and will broadcast on Rai 3 and Rai Cultura on April 15, 2021.

Lisette Oropesa will star in the role of Violetta Valéry alongside Saimir Pirgu as Alfredo Germont and Roberto Frontali as Giorgio Germont.

The cast will also be rounded out by Anastasia Boldyreva as Flora, Roberto Accurso as Barone Douphol and  artists from the “Fabbrica” Young Artist Program dell’Opera di Roma including Angela Schisano (Annina), Arturo Espinosa (Marchese D’Obigny), Rodrigo Ortiz (Gastone), and Andrii Ganchuk (Dottor Grenvil).

The new stream comes after the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma presented a concert version of “I Puritani” with Jessica Pratt and “Il Barbiere di Siviglia,” which opened the virtual season.
