La Traviata at Teatro Real, Madrid 2015

La Traviata at Teatro Real, Madrid 2015

Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave, based on the novel and theatre play La dame aux camélias (1848 and 1852) by Alexandre Dumas fils

After its initial rejection, Verdi’s unique opera whose action unfolds in a contemporary setting, La Traviata became one of the most acclaimed works of the composer. This came about because of the universal values that are brought to light following the tragedy of a high-society courtesan who renounces even life itself to protect the honour of her lover, demonstrating a grandeur lacking in the hypocritical bourgeois society that abused and then rejected her.

The story brought Verdi legendary status through music with a profound sense of humanity and psychological portrayal of the characters and their feelings.
Stage conductor David McVicar, uses his usual elegance to set the drama in a world of romantic references while retaining an up-to-date perspective.
