New York City Opera has spent significant time in Bryant Park this summer, performing hour-long versions of Bizet’s Carmen, Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, Rossini’s La Cenerentola, and Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West and Madama Butterfly, among other special presentations. Next up is Verdi’s perennial favorite, La Traviata, based on a novel by Alexandre Dumas fils. It’s more timely than usual now that Pretty Woman is on Broadway, featuring a scene in which the protagonists go to the opera to see the show. La Traviata will be performed in the park on August 28 at 6:00; the People’s Opera summer season concludes September 17 with Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.
