La Traviata (“The Fallen Woman”) premiered at Venice’s Teatro La Fenice in 1853. It is one of Verdi’s most popular works, and the role of its heroine, the courtesan Violetta, is known as one of the most challenging in the soprano repertory.  One of the signatures of the work is its melodic waltz tunes which evoke the Parisian high life and add an intense, yet beautiful, melancholy as Violetta’s time begins to run out.
