La traviata tells the story of the tragic love between the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont. … When his father directly appeals to Violetta to relinquish her one chance of happiness, Violetta submits and her act of self-sacrifice leads to her paying the ultimate price.
La traviata (The Fallen Woman) is anopera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It is based on La Dame aux camélias (1852), a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils. The opera was originally titledVioletta, after the main character. It was first performed on 6 March 1853 at La Feniceopera house in Venice.
Piave and Verdi wanted to follow Dumas in giving the opera a contemporary setting, but the authorities at La Fenice insisted that it be set in the past, “c. 1700”. It was not until the 1880s that the composer’s and librettist’s original wishes were carried out and “realistic” productions were staged. La traviata has become immensely popular and is among the most frequently performed of all operas.
