‘La traviata’ at The Metropolitan Opera
This spring, Thomas Hampson revisits a signature role, Giorgio Germont, in his return to The Metropolitan Opera stage. Sonya Yoncheva and Carmen Giannatasio alternate as Violetta, and Michael Fabiano is Alfredo, in the Willy Decker production which Mr. Hampson originated in Salzburg (2005) to great acclaim:
“Thomas Hampson masterfully portrays the elder Germont as a man torn – moved by Violetta but determined that propriety prevails.” (The New York Times)
