La Traviata de Verdi

- 5 July 2022 - 21:30 /

Opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, premiered in 1853 at La Fenice in Venice, to a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils, La Dame aux camélias.

La Traviata has become one of the most performed works in operas in the 20th century. After having conferred on Verdi, during his lifetime, international glory. From the first notes of the opening of La Traviata, Verdi announces the end, or does he not already place himself at the end, to then go back to the past with the particular look that characterizes tragedy?

It is this double point of view that guides this project. On the one hand, a dying Violetta who remembers the past and on the other hand, a Violetta who is dazed in appearances and social mirage. On the one hand, a lucid Violetta witnessing her vain hopes and on the other hand, a young and ambitious Violetta who tries to get out of social determinism by her unique sensuality. On the one hand, a Violetta who has put on her social mask and on the other hand, at the end of her story, a Violetta without a mask who, eaten away by illness, observes with lucidity the crossing of appearances and the mirror of the universe of men.
