La Traviata Roundtable Discussion

La Traviata Roundtable Discussion

We spend time with the stars of Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata, which is being presented by Toledo Opera on Friday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 24 at the Valentine Theatre.

International opera star and Toledo favorite Kathryn Lewek takes on the role of Violetta for the very first time, joined by her real-life husband, acclaimed tenor Zach Borichevsky as Alfredo. Rounding out the cast is dramatic baritone Malcolm MacKenzie, who plays Alfredo's father, Giorgio Germont.

We're also joined by the esteemed maestro Joseph Colaneri, Music Director of the Glimmerglass Festival in upstate New York, and frequent conductor at the Metropolitan Opera.
