Perhaps he is the one
Truly a romance for the ages, La Traviata has long since dominated the operatic repertoire with its tale of a doomed romance between a beautiful courtesan and a bedazzled young member of the bourgeois. From the twinkling salons of 19th Century Paris to an isolated idyll in the French countryside, Verdi consistently sets pulses beating with its wonderful melodies and stunning score that accompany the unforgettable story of Violetta and Alfredo as they tumble toward a heart-breaking finale.
The story of La Traviata
As one of the most sought after courtesans of Paris, the alluring Violetta has many admirers but has let none of her wealthy suitors near her heart, preferring their generosity with their wallets to their baser attentions. It is in this world she meets Alfredo, a handsome yet penniless young man who wins her love and whisks her away to a countryside hideaway in the hope of escaping her past life. Can their passion survive the reality of poverty, familial pressure, reputation and illness, or will everything they have fought to flee overwhelm the strongest emotion of them all?
