Famous Opera “La Traviata” Projected Live Downtown Buenos Aires
The classic work of Verdi, “La Traviata”, was projected live in the Vatican Square in Buenos Aires last week where 4,000 people – surpassing the 1,500 available chairs – enjoyed the famous opera. Connoisseurs and novices to the opera scene came together with their thermoses and mate to witness the spectacle as the beautiful music mixed with the sounds of the City.
In three acts, the opera La Traviata tells the love story between Violetta Valeri and Alfredo Germont. It is an intense soap opera, with comings and goings like those seen on TV in prime time but in this case accompanied by orchestral music.
“We are very satisfied with the turnout,” explains Fabián Sánchez, one of the organizers of the event. “There are about 4,000 people in the folding wooden chairs, standing or sitting on the floor.”
“La Traviata” has the musical direction of maestro Evelino Pidó and the protagonist of is played by Jaho, one of the current stars of the international opera, who plays Valery. Singing alongside Jaho were compatriot Saimir Pirgu (Alfredo) and the Argentine baritone Fabián Veloz (Gorgio Germont)
