Time to begin a new page of reviews, I think, and we’ll start with Katie Womack’s smart assessment of “La traviata,” being performed tonight, as well as April 21st, 27th and 29th (matinee) in the Winspear. Ms. Womack writes in this week’s issue of the “Observer”: “Lead by strong vocal and instrumental performances and underscored by a stunning production, this “La traviata” is a solid effort by The Dallas Opera that does justice both to Verdi’s score and our city’s fantastic new opera house.” Read more of Katie’s review right here.

UPDATE: Here’s the review for Dallas “Voice” from Arnold Wayne Jones, who praises the Dallas Opera for choosing “a production as gorgeously overwrought as the opera itself.” If you’d like to see for yourself, check out this terrific slideshow by Michael L. Haynes for “Dallas Dance Examiner.”
