Richard Eyre's classic production conveys the indulgent social whirl of 19th-century Paris. It provides a vivid setting for Verdi's tuneful score, which includes such favourites as Violetta's introspective 'Ah forse lui'; the duet 'Pura siccome un angelo' as Germont pere pleads for his daughter with Violetta; and 'Parigi, o cara', in which the lovers poignantly imagine a life that will never be theirs. The role of Violetta (the 'fallen woman' of the title) is one of Verdi's most complex characters. It was played to great acclaim by Angela Gheorghiu in this production's 1994 premiere.
