Verdi’s La Traviata – Kentucky Opera (2009) – The Courier-Journal

Kentucky Opera offers superb ‘Traviata’

I’ll make this as direct as possible: If you’re not free, rearrange your schedule – get to the Brown Theatre to hear Kentucky Opera’s season-opening production of Verdi’s “La Traviata.” Directed with clear, shrewdly paced intelligence by James Marvel, this is one of the most compelling versions of “Traviata” you’re likely to encounter these days, a genuinely original interpretation with soprano Elizabeth Futral delivering a luminous, emotionally shattering Violetta.
