When a promising young man falls for a woman with a shady past, his family is outraged. She finally decides to sacrifice her happiness to save his reputation and pushes him away. Eventually, he realizes what happened and returns to her side for a bittersweet reunion in one of Verdi’s most popular – and heartbreaking – operas. Starring in this ravishing production are Soprano Larisa Martinez, at home on stage with Placido Domingo and Andrea Bocelli; and Metropolitan Opera Tenor Aaron Blake, both making their debuts with the Wichita Grand Opera, as renowned Stage Director Robert Stivanello makes his return to WGO. Costume design is by the Stivanello Costume Company, while the sets are designed by Ercole Sormani at the Sormani Studios in Milan, Italy. His “soft good” drop sets, relatively unheard of in the United States today, provide stunning vistas on stage, transporting the audiences to Paris, circa 1850.
