The Teatro di San Carlo in Napoli has announced that it is canceling concert performances of Verdi’s “La Traviata” on October 27 & 28, 2020, due to technical reasons.

The cast for the concert performances on Oct. 24 & 25, 2020 includes Albina Shagimuratova and Nino Machaidze in the role of Violetta Valéry, Francesco Demuro and Ivan Magrì in the role of Alfredo Germont, and Giovanni Meoni in the role of Giorgio Germont.
