Burnaby Lyric Opera: La Traviata
Wednesday, May 6
2:00 pm (course #938105)
7:00 pm (course #938108)

Burnaby Lyric Opera is pleased to present highlights from Giuseppe Verdi’s magnificent opera, La Traviata.

This beloved classic explores society and morality through the passionate love and tragic death of the beautiful, but fragile, courtesan Violetta, who sacrifices her one hope for happiness for her lover’s reputation.

You will hear this glorious music sung by five of British Columbia’s superb young opera singers — featuring soprano Gina McLellan Morel as Violetta and tenor Brian Lee as Alfredo — under the musical direction of David Boothroyd.

Burnaby Lyric Opera began in the early 1980’s and by 1997 had evolved into a professional company with its permanent home in the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in Burnaby. For its innovative productions and high performance standards, BLO has received praise and critical acclaim, not only from local newspaper critics, but the high-profile magazine, Opera Canada. The company is a non-profit society with a vision to give emerging professional and semi-professional opera singers in British Columbia the opportunity to sing leading roles in fully-staged operas.
