La Traviata (2 CD)
ARTIST: Beverly Sills
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 05/04/18

Over the course of her extraordinary career, Beverly Sills performed the role of Violetta in La traviata over 300 times, in her native US and in cities such as Venice and Naples. “In every moment she is Violetta, and a Violetta of infinite emotional and vocal scope,” wrote Opera magazine. For this recording, conducted by Italian maestro Aldo Ceccato, Sills was joined by the ever-elegant Nicolai Gedda as Alfredo, and Rolando Panerai, one of the great Verdi baritones of his time, as his father, Giorgio Germont.

History

La Traviata

Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata (The Fallen Woman) is a three-act opera based on “La Dame aux Camelias”, adapted from the novel by
Alexandre Dumas. The play is still staged today in its original form.

Originally titled, Violetta after the main character, La Traviata is one of the composer’s most frequently performed operas.

The story is of Violetta, a beautiful courtesan of Paris, Alfredo, her handsome, yet penniless lover and Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love.

The Met’s 2018–19 production of Verdi's heartbreaking classic featured a decadent 18th-century Paris played out against a stunning backdrop that changed with the seasons and the nature of Violetta and Alfredo's doomed, but exquisitely beautiful romance.

La Traviata made its world premiere in Venice at the Teatro la Fenice, on March 6, 1853.
