Verdi’s La Traviata tells the story of Violetta, a Parisian prostitute who is dying of consumption, and of her doomed love affair with Alfredo. When it first premiered in 1853, Verdi’s depiction of the Parisian demi-monde was controversial, and he was forced to abandon his radical idea of having the opera performed in modern dress. Since then, La Traviata’s beautiful and dramatic music, and its poignant story of lovers who transgress bourgeois society’s mores, have made it one of Verdi’s most beloved operas. We will explore the music and the story of the opera scene by scene.
La Traviata is onstage at Houston Grand Opera October 21 - November 6, 2022
This class will be held onsite at WIH and simulcast via Zoom.
