La Traviata //
Opera in three acts · Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave · In Italian with German subtitles
The story of »La Traviata« is based on Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel »The Lady of the Camellias«. The central figure of the opera is the Parisian courtesan Violetta Valéry who, out of respect for the honour of the Germont family, renounces her love for Alfredo and dies of consumption. A melodrama of the finest Italian opera veneer.
