The Opéra en Plein Air festival announced the 2022 tour will be postponed. It was to deliver exceptional performances of Giuseppe Verdi's “La Traviata” from June 17 to September 10, 2022 in Paris and more cities in Île-de-France and France. Meet in 2023.

Opéra en Plein Air has been performing opera arias out of noble walls since 2001. This year, the lyrical festival chose to shine a light on composer Giuseppe Verdi and his operaLa Traviata” after proposing Giacomo Puccini's "Madama Butterfly" last year.  In Île-de-France, it is in at least four remarkable locations in the area you can attend exceptional performances of “La Traviata” as part of the 21st edition of Opéra en Plein Air held from June 17 to September 10, 2022. An edition sponsored by Ariane Massenet.

Performed for the first time in 1853 at the Venice's Teatro La Fenice, “La Traviata” - later immortalized by Maria Callas - is an opera by Giuseppe Verdi based on Alexandre Dumas son's Camille. This 2022 version is staged by Olivier Desbordes (who worked with Tina Turner and Karl Lagerfeld) already staged “Madama Butterfly” last year.

In this “La Traviata” created by Desbordes, musical conduction is entrusted to Dominique Trottein (Théâtre Mogador conductor for “Chicago” and “Ghost” musicals – among others) and Gaspard Brécourt. Anne Gravoin is a violin soloist, and Serenad Burcu Uyar is Violetta.
