One of the most romantic, brilliant and tragic scores of all time, Verdi's ever popular masterpiece contrasts spectacular grand opera choruses with scenes of indescribable tenderness and love.
La Traviata is the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the younger, passionate Alfredo Germont. Played out against the hypocrisy of upper-class society, Alfredo and Violetta's love threatens to ruin his family. His father appeals to Violetta to give up Alfredo for the sake of the family. Knowing she is ill and can never marry Alfredo, she relinquishes her one chance of happiness in an ultimate act of sacrifice.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
