Featuring one of the most iconic, romantic and tragic scores of all time, Verdi’s work contrasts spectacular party scenes with tender, intimate moments.
La Traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class fashionable society, Alfredo and Violetta’s love threatens to shame his family. When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.
Written by Francesco Maria Piave and music composed by Giuseppe Verdi, La Traviata is an acclaimed classic.
This production is a collaboration between Opera 2001, Fundação Pedro Ruivo and Radio TSF.
