Hofstra University:

Countdown to “La Traviata”

"La Traviata" (Italian) "The Fallen Woman" was first performed on March 6, 1853 at the La Fenice opera house in Venice.

The three act opera was written by Giussepe Verdi, considered one of the preeminent 19th century composers. 

His legacy lives on in his beautiful and enduring opera which will be performed live by the Bronx Opera Company on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday May 18 at Hofstra University in the John Cranford Adams Playhouse.

The opera will be sung in English, so it is the perfect introduction to beautiful operatic music.
