New York City Opera will return to Phoenicia N.Y. this summer, after their beautiful and successful production of ‘Rigoletto’ this past season. New York City Opera company, which created so many stars in the past will stay with Verdi and bring their own, classical touch to “La Traviata”- a beautiful, Parisian courtesan finally finds true love only to have her life cut short by a fatal disease. New York City Opera has given us some of the great Violettas of our times such as Beverly Sills, Diana Soviero and Ashley Putnam- and we are sure they will deliver yet another budding star in the role to capture our hearts and minds. NY City opera brings Verdi’s “La Traviata’ to the Phoenicia Int. Festival of the Voice.
