About the performance

The premiere of the opera La Traviata was on the 6th of March 1853 at Teatro La Fenice in Venice. It was the first time that Verdi referred not to the romantic events of the past but a contemporary and, for those days, scandalous plot. It took a long time for the censors to allow an extremely popular novel by Alexandre Dumas fils to be presented on stage. The premiere of La Dame aux Camélias took place only in 1852. According to Léon Escudier, a publisher and friend of Verdi: “Once Verdi attended a performance of La Dame aux Camélias, he was struck by the plot and felt a flutter in the strings of his lyra”.

Premiered on October 7, 2012.

Presented with one interval.

Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave based on the novel La dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils

Synopsis

Part One

Alfredo Germont arrives at a party at the home of Violetta Valéry, a renowned courtesan. She is surprised to learn of his devotion to her, and of his concern during her recent illness. Alfredo leads a toast to love; Violetta responds with a toast to pleasure and excitement. Feeling faint, she excuses herself to rest. Alfredo follows and begs her to allow him to love and care for her. She tells him she is not interested in such heroic commitment, but invites him to return the next day. Alone, she wonders if she is capable of experiencing love. Dismissing the idea as nonsense, she determines to live for freedom and pleasure alone.
