Fort Worth Opera 75th Anniversary Season
De los Santos’ cleverly new streamlined production taps into the zeitgeist of this uncertain, post-pandemic era, one not so removed from the epidemic-choked world surrounding the composer’s original opera. This sleek, intimate vision of La Traviata brings into sharp focus the inner conflicts of love and duty, freedom, passion, and self-sacrifice found throughout Piave’s libretto. For those who treasure this tragic romance or first-timers who have yet to experience Verdi’s sumptuous score, arias, and duets, there is something here for every opera lover to savor, just as audiences have done for over 160 years.

This afternoon we will explore the pursuit of fame and fortune, love and joy, and simply, surviving day-to-day.

UNT Opera presents:
LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR
Donizetti’s beloved bel canto masterpiece is interpreted in a whole new Covid-compliant concept: Lucia finds herself at the beginning of the opera in an isolation ward, surrounded by plastic curtaining; she relives the events that led up to her madness, and try as she might to make meaningful contact with others, no-one will come within nine feet of her… the time is the present. - UNT Opera
