By David Salazar

Verdi’s “La Traviata” is the third entry in the Vienna State Opera’s live streaming series for its 2018-19 season.

The Sunday performance on Sept. 23, 2018, will be led by conductor Evelino Pidò and will feature Albina Shagimuratova, Pavol Breslik, and Simon Keenlyside. This is the final performance of the Verdi masterpiece with this cast. However, a new trio will appear in early 2019 in a revival.

The stream kicks off at 6 p.m. local time and is slated to run until around 8:30 p.m. That’s around 1 p.m. EDT and 10 a.m. PST for the start time.

Per the official website, this performance will be free of charge through OMV. This promotion pops up throughout the season for some special performances. This is the first such instance of such a promotion during the 2018-19 season and the only one announced thus far in 2018.

Next up on the slate of live streams will be “Werther,” “Don Pasquale,” Eugene Onegin,” and “Elektra.”
