La Traviata (the fallen one)

Skylight Music Theatre, WI

"Modern 'Traviata' packs a punch!"

"Dimitri Toscas' new English libretto fits Verdi's music neatly, conveys meaning, and most importantly doesn't strangle the singers… Toscas' smartest move was to give the Germonts political ambition, which becomes the reason for splitting up the briefly happy couple. That makes more modern sense than the original reason, mere family honor."

-Tom Strini, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
