Michael Mayer’s bold new production locates Verdi’s tragedy of lust, betrayal, and revenge in Las Vegas in 1960. George Gagnidze sings the title role and Lisette Oropesa is his beautiful daughter, who falls under the spell of Vittorio Grigolo’s womanizing Duke.
Production a gift of the Hermione Foundation, Laura Sloate, Trustee; and Mr. and Mrs. Paul M. Montrone
