About La traviata

Verdi's music is incomparable, with one heartstoppingly beautiful melody after another, in this exquisitely romantic story. Within the social whirl of sophisticated Paris, the courtesan Violetta lives purely for pleasure but longs for true love. She finds the right man in Alfredo, but their happiness is cut short: at his father’s insistence, Violetta leaves Alfredo for the sake of his family. Her spirit broken, her health shattered, Violetta now lives only with the hope that Alfredo will return to her. "La traviata" gives us one of opera’s most glorious heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
