Opera Colorado Archives: Eric Barry (Alfredo) and Cecilia Lopez (Violetta) in La Traviata (2018)
Kicking off another extravagant party at Violetta’s house, the crowd urges Alfredo (tenor Eric Barry) to sing a brindisi – a drinking song. Following the demands of the other guests, Alfredo raises a glass and sings “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” (Let’s drink from the joyful cups). Violetta (soprano Cecilia Violetta Lopez) wishes her guests good health and joy, as she too raises her glass. #SempreOC
Verdi’s “La traviata” was performed at the Ellie Caulkins Opera house in 2018.
