Description

La Traviata (CD)

La Traviata is one of Verdi’s most popular and most performed operas, and is based on the play La dame aux Camelias by Alexanndre Dumas. This particular recording, made in 1959, has not been available for many years, despite the historical importance of the lead roles. Victoria De Los Angeles portrays Violetta, and Alfredo is played by Carlo Del Monte who is proud and incisive, contrasting the typical lyric tenors that usually play the role.

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.
