La Traviata: a motion picture

MIOpera and Uplift Productions

Ticket Link: https://mioblono.booktix.com

The long awaited movie premiere is here!

La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love affair between Violetta Ewing and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of Bloomington-Normal’s upper-class society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.

Filmed on location at Ewing Manor, La Traviata combines the beauty, elegance and history of the manor with the sweeping melodies and classic love story of Verdi’s musical score. It also serves to honor how the Ewing family, especially its matriarch, Hazle Buck Ewing, contributed to the vibrant social, economic and artistic community that Bloomington-Normal has today!

Tracy Marie Koch, producer and director
