Dallas — Tonight The Dallas Opera opens one of the most popular works in the repertoire, Verdi's La traviata, which runs for two more weeks in repertory with Saint-Saëns' Samson et Dalila.

Italian conductor Carlo Montanaro makes his Dallas Opera debut conducting the work, and Stefania Panighini makes her American debut staging the production from Lyric Opera of Chicago that was originally directed by Frank Galati. 

and stars American soprano Georgia Jarman as the doomed Paris courtesan, Violetta Valéry; American tenor René Barbera in his company debut as Alfredo, the naïve young man who falls head-over-heels for her; and Belarussian baritone Vladislav Sulimsky as Alfredo’s deeply concerned father, Giorgio Germont. 

Gregory Sullivan Isaacs, our chief classical music and opera critic, talked briefly to Montanaro about conducting the work, which you can listen to in this audio interview. You will need to bump up the volume on your computer/device.
