La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi - Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the play La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, Jr.
Premiere: Venice, Teatro la Fenice, 1853
Verdi’s La Traviata survived a notoriously unsuccessful opening night to become one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the "fallen woman" has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.
