La Traviata (Royal Opera House)



La Traviata, one of the most popular operas in the canon, was written in record time: letters from 1853 indicate that Giuseppe Verdi completed it in well under two months. The opera is based on the play "La dame aux camellias" by Alexandre Dumas

The title, which means "The fallen woman," refers to the heroine, Violetta Valery, a courtesan in 19th century France. The role of Violetta is considered one of the most challenging (if not most feared!) in the soprano repertoire. The score requires a vast range of vocal pyrotechnics from the performer, and also sheer endurance  Violetta is onstage for nearly the entire opera. This production stars the celebrated American soprano Renée Fleming, alongside tenor Joseph Calleja and bass Thomas Hampson  all audience favorites.
