Description

The Violetta Valéry Bracelet

The Violetta Valéry Bracelet is inspired by the unforgettable character from La Traviata by Verdi. Consumed by a life of pleasure and reaching the end of her days the beautiful but fragile courtesan opens herself to the possibility of true love and all the joy and pain it entails.

Glass pearls, hearts and flowers reflect Violetta's delicacy, while hints of purple symbolize her name. A camellia charm signifies the flower she gives Alfredo at the beginning of their love affair and a cameo is the portrait that she gives him to remember her by upon her death. A large heart with purple stones represents "love" which is engraved on the back in English, French (the setting of the opera) and Italian (the language of the opera).

All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.

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.
