About Washington National Opera: La traviata

La traviata

Music by Giuseppe Verdi / Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, from the novel La dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas

As a courtesan, the beautiful Violetta is the life of every party, toasting to high-class pleasures alongside wealthy men. But Violetta holds a devastating secret: she is sick and dying. When the affluent Alfredo confesses his love, happily-ever-after finally seems within reach—until his father condemns his lover’s low social status. Now Violetta must make an impossible choice before death claims her.

We launch the 2018–2019 season with a stunning new production of Verdi’s everlasting story of love and sacrifice. From the famous brindisi drinking song to the heartbreaking “Addio del passato” aria, La traviata captures Violetta’s unforgettable plight and illuminates tensions of social class that ring just as true today.
