Opera by Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the play by Alexandre Dumas fils La dame aux camélias
Revival on October 29, 2009

The play by Dumas fils was published in 1849 and staged in 1852. Giuseppe Verdi, who attended the premiere, was so fascinated by the play that he based his opera La traviata on it. La traviata premiered the next year. It is a moving love story haunted by the morality of society and Violetta’s past. Ephemeral happiness ends in tragedy.
