La Traviata is one of the most beloved theatrical works of all time, combining an exquisitely romantic story with gloriously memorable music that unfurls one heart stopping beautiful melody after another. A treat for all audiences, La Traviata appeals to everyone from opera newcomers to the most enthusiastic aficionados.
Verdi’s vibrant masterpiece contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments. La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable 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 in an act of heart wrenching self-sacrifice, making her one of opera’s most glorious heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth.
