La Traviata at Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre

Supplemented and enhanced by Leigh Sachwitz’ video content created especially for the occasion, Chinese director Chen Shi-Zheng’s updated version of Giuseppe Verdi’s tragic tale of love and loss, La Traviata, premiered in the European Capital of Culture, Vilnius in Lithuania on May 8th, 2009.

Shi-Zheng’s multimedia visions are framed by Leigh’s beautiful large-scale projections and, both combined, define a concise visual language that reflect the production’s edgy costumes, lighting and set design.

One of the undisputed highlights of the opera season, the production received a standing ovation and cemented the ongoing creative partnership between Chen Shi-Zheng and Studio Leigh Sachwitz.
