Sharing the beauty & power of live opera


THANK YOU to everyone who made our production of La Traviata possible.

We are humbled by the tremendous support surrounding this show, including our incredibly talented cast, crew, and orchestra, the Academy Center of the Arts, our sponsors and most importantly: each and every one of you who purchased a seat to witness this historic event.

We believe opera is for everyone, and you proved us right with the incredible turnout we witnessed this weekend. We are incredibly grateful.
