About

The traviata stands out for its realistic approach: the story of Violetta, on her deathbed, evoking a flashback to her life as a courtesan. An exaltation to life and human virtues such as generosity, compassion, and sacrifice for others, who are frustrated by the relentless judgment of a class society, where Alfredo is the stereotype of the ardent obsessive lover. 

David McVicar’s masterful production allows us to do a contemporary rereading and an exploration of the intimacy of the characters. A grandiose melodrama with a period setting where the sacrifice of material obsessions for the nobility of love is explained. 

With a delicate and sensitive prelude only to strings, Verdi affirmed his intention to defy the rules. Her Violetta is the tragic heroine presented naked in the face of the violence of a relentless and violent community that promotes the pleasures of sacrificing an innocent woman at the altar of bourgeois morality.
