BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Opera is back in Baltimore. Years after the Baltimore Opera Company closed down, music is returning to a newly-renovated stage at the Modell Performing Arts Center.

Mary Bubala has more.

“La Traviata” will grace the stage at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric Opera House for two nights only. It will star renowned soprano Elizabeth Futral.

“‘La Traviata’ is one of my favorite operas, I think, my favorite role right now,” Futral, who plays Violetta in “La Traviata,” said. “It’s a gorgeous opera by Giuseppe Verdi and tells a beautiful story.”

This production of “La Traviata” features the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in the pit for the first time in more than 20 years.

The cast is thrilled to be part of the re-birth of opera in Baltimore.

“It has great, great music,” Futral said. “We have beautiful lavish sets and costumes here, and a wonderful cast singing with me, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra playing for us. So it’s going to be an exciting production.”

Tickets start at $40. The performances will be only on Friday, Nov. 4 and Sunday, Nov. 6.
