Event Details

OPERA IN THE PARK Portland presents its 22nd Annual Opera in the Park event, featuring a world-class cast of internationally acclaimed singers, and full chorus and orchestra under the direction of Keith Clark. After over 20 years of performing in the Washington Park, OPERA IN THE PARK Portland is bringing La Traviata to THE EAST SIDE this year: the beautiful Peninsula Park Rose Garden, at 6pm on Sunday August 4th, 2024. As always, the concert is open to all, and is offered FREE of charge.

Arguably Verdi’s most beloved opera, La Traviata tells an unforgettable tale of love, passion, and selfless sacrifice. Set in Paris, the opera follows the tragic tale of the courtesan “Violetta”, as she struggles to reconcile her own desires with an ongoing illness and society’s expectations. With its unforgettable melodies and poignant drama, it isn’t hard to see why La Traviata continues to be one of the most enduring masterpieces in the operatic canon.

This production will feature soprano AUBRY BALLARÒ singing the iconic role of “Violetta”, tenor CÉSAR DELGADO as her naive lover “Alfredo”, and baritone LUIS LEDESMA as his domineering father “Germont.” Other principal artists include Opera in the Park veterans, bass-baritone DEANDRE SIMMONS, and soprano JOCELYN CLAIRE THOMAS.

This event promises to be an unforgettable evening that combines the magnificence and power of Verdi’s music with the natural beauty of the pacific northwest. The open-air performance will enchant and transport audiences, offering a unique and immersive operatic experience. Perfect for opera lovers, and first time opera goers alike, don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of this extraordinary night of music, drama, and community.

Opera in the Park Portland is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment of cultural life in Portland. We believe that OPERA IS FOR EVERYONE, and are committed to presenting annual free operatic performances in beautiful and accessible venues in the Portland Metro Area. All are welcome!
