Dessay's first TRAVIATA at Santa Fe Opera.


Well, as we well said before, Natalie Dessay breaks her... oaths and she is going to sing/act her first-ever- Violetta Valéry at the Santa Fe Opera (New Mexico) late this summer (July-August 2009).

Natalie and her Traviata will open the Summer Santa Fe Festival season on July 3th (Friday) till 29th August.

So, if you have the... time, the money, and the courage (Natalie is known for her last minute cancellations) you can travel to New Mexico to enjoy the production.

Here is the full cast of the production:

  • Violetta - Natalie Dessay
  • Alfredo - Saimir Pirgu
  • Gastone - Keith Jameson
  • Germont (through Aug. 17) - Laurent Naouri
  • Germont (Aug. 22, 26, 29) - Anthony Michaels-Moore
  • Douphol - Wayne Tigges
  • Dr. Grenvil - Harold Wilson
  • Conductor - Frederic Chaslin
  • Director - Laurent Pelly
