La Traviata – In collaboration with Pittsburgh Opera, a production of this perennial Verdi favorite starring internationally renowned Elizabeth Futral as Violetta and conducted by Metropolitan Opera conductor Steven White and featuring Jason Stearns as Germont. The opulent sets and costumes will be designed by Desmond Healey and come from the Lyric Opera of Chicago. This beautiful set, created for a large stage, will find a perfect home in our newly renovated stage-house which for the first time will be able to accommodate a set so grand and lavish. – Baltimoreopera.com
While perusing our Baltimore Opera Blogosphere, I happened upon a letter written to Tim Smith that he posted on his blog Clef Notes and Drama Queens.
