In his first Live in HD appearance as the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts Michael Mayer’s richly textured new production of "La Traviata," at 10 a.m. Saturday, December 15 at the Newport Performing Arts Center, hosted by Karen and Benedict Sarnaker.
The new production features a dazzling 18th-century setting that changes with the seasons. Soprano Diana Damrau plays the tragic heroine, Violetta, and tenor Juan Diego Flórez returns to the Met for the first time in five seasons to sing Alfredo, Violetta’s hapless lover. Baritone Quinn Kelsey is Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love. Run time is approximately 3 hours and 10 minutes, with two intermissions.
The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is proud to celebrate 10 years of Met Opera Live in HD productions at the PAC with this 2018-19 season. View the brochure as a PDF for season details (or click the link under "Downloads," under the map). Read the synopsis, provided by the Met.

Hofer Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation, the City of Newport, season benefactors, opera hosts, OCCA members and you who purchase tickets, for making this a reality. Thank you.
