Violetta, a Parisian courtesan, falls in love with Alfredo. She leaves high society behind for a blissful life with him in the country. But their happiness is short lived. Alfredo’s father convinces her to abandon his son, in order to save the family’s honor. Gravely ill and destitute, she lives long enough to see Alfredo finally return to her and dies in his arms. Verdi’s most famous opera, La traviata features some of the best known arias and ensembles in the entire opera repertoire, in a score of unparalleled elegance and great dramatic sweep.
