This year, La Scala has chosen the Verdi favorite “La Traviata” to kick off the calendar, with celebrated soprano Diana Damrau as Violetta Valery. Piotr Beczala and Zeljko Lucic round out the cast as Alfredo and Giorgio Germont, respectively. This new and exciting production will be a must-see event for any opera fan.
