La traviata

La traviata is arguably Verdi’s most famous work and, despite its opening night failure at Venice’s La Fenice in 1853, still holds a unique place in this company’s repertoire. Robert Carsen’s production, placing the action in a contemporary setting, has enjoyed repeated success since the reopening of the house in 2004 after a fire. The plot, considered as a provocation by the original audience, is based on La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas son, depicting the tragic fate of the Paris courtesan Marguerite Gautier. The beauty and the dramatic strength of its music, adding to the portrayal of its characters and the way the story unfolds, make it a must for anyone who loves opera, a show you have to see at least once in your lifetime.
