Three captivating sopranos with many previous triumphs to their names—Nadine Sierra, Ermonela Jaho, and Angel Blue— star as the self-sacrificing courtesan Violetta, one of opera's ultimate heroines. Tenors Stephen Costello, Ismael Jordi (in his Met debut), and Dmytro Popov share the role of her self-centered lover Alfredo, alongside baritones Luca Salsi, Amartuvshin Enkhbat (another debut), and Artur Ruciński as his disapproving father. Michael Mayer's vibrant production also features three maestros: Daniele Callegari, Marco Armiliato, and Nicola Luisotti.World premiere: Teatro la Fenice, Venice, 1853. Verdi's La Traviata survived a notoriously unsuccessful opening night to become one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the "fallen woman" has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.
There's no day but today to get tickets to Without You, the new one-man musical by Anthony Rapp that celebrates an iconic modern musical. Get Anthony Rapp's Without You tickets on New York Theatre Guide. Without You is a musical, based on Rapp's New York Times bestselling memoir, about the show that changed his life. He shares how at 22, he was working at Starbucks and low on money — and then came an audition for a new show called Rent. Rapp didn't know it yet, but Jonathan Larson's rock musical about bohemian New Yorkers living through the AIDS crisis would soon revolutionize the modern musical and cement Larson in theatre history. But on the day of Rent's first-ever performance off Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop, Larson died. With Rent songs, original music, and personal anecdotes, Rapp pays tribute to Larson in Without You and the love, loss, and life-changing experiences being a part of Rent brought him. Rapp originated the lead role of filmmaker Mark Cohen off Broadway in 1996, on Broadway later that year, and in London in 1998. His other Broadway credits include Six Degrees of Separation, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and If/Then, which also featured his Rent co-star Idina Menzel. Rapp published Without You in 2006 and first turned the book into a stage show in 2012. He has performed that version in London, Edinburgh, Toronto, Boston, and more, but Without You off Broadway is its first production in New York. Though Without You is called a one-man show, Rapp is accompanied on stage by a five-piece band as he performs songs like "La Vie Boheme," a flagship Rent song, and "Losing My Religion" by R.E.M., which he used to audition for Rent back in the '90s.
