Description

The Real Traviata
The Song of Marie Duplessis
By Rene Weis

The story of the woman who inspired Verdi's La Traviata - some of the most heart-wrenching and lyrical music ever composed. A woman who used her charm, wit, and stunning beauty to shoot to the pinnacle of stardom, inspiring scandal and great art in almost equal measure. An amazing rags-to-riches journey from rural poverty to the apex of Parisian fashion, ending ultimately in a tragic early death. Set against the back-drop of the famous cafes and salons of Baudelaire's 'vieux Paris' and the febrile atmosphere of the great spa towns of nineteenth century Europe.
