Gran Teatre De Liceu has announced that it will resume the presentation of Verdi’s “La Traviata” on Dec. 14, 2020. According to an official statement, the opera house will reopen with a 50 percent seating capacity limitation.
As a result, two new performances will be added to the run, on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23 2020. The opera is set to run until Dec. 30, 2020, for a total of 15 performances.
“I would like to thank the Ministry of Culture and the Interior Affairs, together with the Civil Protection, for understanding the needs of the Institution and for positively evaluating the security protocols and the specific ventilation system at the Liceu,” said Salvador Alemany, the President of the Foundation of the Gran Teatre de Liceu.
The opera stars Kristina Mkhitaryan, Pretty Yende, Lisette Oropesa, and Ermonela Jaho in the role of Violetta Valéry, Pavol Breslik, and Dmitry Korchak in the role of Alfredo Germont, and George Gagnidze and Giovanni Meoni alternating in the role of Giorgio Germont.
