Greek National Opera - Pier Giorgio Morandi - Konstantinos Rigos

La Traviata
by Giuseppe Verdi

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus programme closes with Verdi’s La traviata, directed by Konstantinos Rigos, which was first performed by the GNO at the Roman Odeon in the summer of 2019 with great success. The unlucky love of the ‘Lady with the Camellias’ for Alfredo Germont, as was conceived and set to music by Verdi through uniquely powerful melodies, which are indelibly etched in the mind and heart, will be revived for four performances.

American opera superstar Nadine Sierra will be performing the role of Violetta Valéry in the first cast, alongside the rising tenor Freddie De Tommaso as Alfredo Germont and internationally acclaimed baritone Dimitri Platanias as Giorgio Germont.

In the second cast, we will have the opportunity to enjoy the distinguished soprano from the Greek National Opera Vassiliki Karayanni as Violetta Valéry, the internationally acclaimed Greek baritone Tassis Christoyannis as Giorgio Germont, and the famous Italian tenor Francesco Demuro as Alfredo.
