More Information about La Traviata

Verdi based La traviata on Alexandre Dumas fils's novel and play La Dame aux camélias, inspired by the life and death of the real Parisian courtesan Marie Duplessis. Verdi offered a more complex and sympathetic portrayal of his heroine than Dumas, highlighting Violetta's noble nature and her devotion to Alfredo. La traviata had an initially lukewarm reception, but after Verdi revised the work in 1854 it became enormously successful. It is currently the most performed opera in the world, and the role of Violetta a favourite for many star sopranos. Richard Eyre's stunning naturalistic production contrasts the superficial glamour of 19th-century Parisian high life with intimate scenes for Violetta with Alfredo and Giorgio Germont, culminating in the heart-breaking final act. Verdi's sublime score contains some of his most inspired arias and duets, including Violetta's introspective 'Ah fors'è lui' and hedonistic 'Sempre libera', Violetta and Germont's poignant Act II encounter and Alfredo and Violetta's 'Parigi, o cara', in which they dream of a happy future.

The Story

Alfredo Germont and the courtesan Violetta Valéry fall in love at a party in Violetta's Paris salon. Alfredo is determined to cure Violetta of her tuberculosis, and the couple leave Paris and begin a contented life in the country. But Violetta's happiness is destroyed when Alfredo's father Giorgio Germont pays her a visit.

What people are saying about La Traviata

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful experience This was our first time at The Royal Opera House. It was a treat for my wife's birthday. The theatre is beautiful, and is definitely the star of any performance there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Incredible Introduction to Opera This was our first experience of Opera, so we wanted to see a well known piece and I have to say we were blown away with the production. I expected the performers to be flawless and they were. The sets were incredible and the venue is stunning, as you'd expect. I understand why the subtitles are shown above the stage but really, they detract from the performance as some of the words don't add up to the power of hearing them in Italian! We will be booking again to see another.
