KL City Opera is proud to present one of Verdi's famous operas - La Traviata for this 2019 season featuring conductor Juan Montoya and stage director Christopher Ling this 27-30 June 2019 at Pentas 1, KLPac.
An opera in three acts by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi with libretto in Italian by Francesco Maria Piave that premiered in Venice at La Fenice opera house on 6 March, 1853.
Based on the 1852 play by Alexandre Dumas (La Dame aux camélias), the opera marked a large step forward for Verdi in his quest to express dramatic ideas in music. La Traviata means “the fallen woman” or “the one who goes astray” and refers to the main character, Violetta Valéry, a beloved Parisian courtesan who suffers from a life-threatening illness. When she meets a man named Alfredo, the two fall deeply in love and move to the countryside together.
One day, Alfredo’s father Germont visits Violetta and asks her to break up with his son to preserve their family’s reputation. She reluctantly agrees and ends the relationship without giving Alfredo a reason, which leaves him devastated. But in Violetta’s final days, Germont is overcome with guilt and tells his son to go reunite with his true love. Catch the opera, to find out the fate of this love affair.
