La Traviata

La Traviata

Production Jean-Francois Sivadier
Stage design Alexandre de Dardel
Costumes: Virginie Gervaise

Giuseppe Verdi took a significant step forward in his development as an opera composer with his work La traviata, based on Duma's The Lady of the Camellias. He did not simply confine himself to portraying human emotions, but tried also to capture in music the social milieu of the courtesan Violetta. At the same time he pushed the limits and at times transcended the bounds of traditional bel canto opera. Verdi was prepared to do away with conventions whenever they ran contrary to his striving for truthfulness. (Source: Wiener Staatsoper)
