In my perception, the Metropolitan's contemporary staging of this well-known opera accomplished the
stated goal, which was to distill it to its musical/dramatic essence by removing the settings, costumes, and periphery that identify it specifically with place and time. The drama itself was the focus, powerfully and clearly communicated by a cast of thoroughly experienced and talented singer/actors. For me, this presentation was far more impactful than any Traviata I have seen previously...
What a marvelous sharing of this fantastic concert with the world of music lovers beyond LA! This
is a MUST for anyone even remotely interested in Gerschwin, plus the amazing talent and charm of Gustavo and Herbie. There's an abundance of supplementary interview and rehearsal material--you'll see it all from a fresh, new perspective. Can't get to LA? No problem...Fandango brings it to YOU!
