Details of La Traviata and the Ticket Luck value
La traviata is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It takes as its basis the novel La dame aux Camelias by Alexandre Dumas, fils, published in 1848.
There is a film version of the opera from 1967, with Anna Moffo as Violetta, Franco Bonisolli as Alfredo, Gino Bechi as Giorgio Germont, and the chorus and orchestra of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, conducted by Giuseppe Patane. The film is directed by Mario Lanfranchi. It is available on DVD.
It was first performed at the Teatro la Fenice in Venice, on March 6, 1853. The title La traviata means literally The Woman Who Strayed, or perhaps more figuratively, The Fallen One.
Piave and Verdi wanted to follow Dumas in giving the opera a contemporary setting, but the authorities at La Fenice insisted that it be set in the past. It was some years before the composer's and librettist's original wishes were carried out.
Over the years, the opera has become immensely popular and a staple of the standard operatic repertoire. It is third on Opera America's list of the 20 most-performed operas in North America, behind only Madama Butterfly and La boheme.
Violetta Valery, a famed courtesan, throws a lavish party at her Paris salon to celebrate her recovery from an illness. Gastone, a count, has brought with him his friend, the young nobleman Alfredo Germont, who has long adored Violetta from afar.
While walking to the salon, Gastone tells Violetta that Alfredo loves her so much and, while she was ill, he came to her house every day. Alfredo joins them, admitting the truth of Gastone's remarks. Violetta replies to Alfredo, I'm indebted to you.The Baron waits not far from them to escort Violetta to the salon, but she walks to him saying, You, Baron, never cared as much.
The Baron replies, I have just known you for a year. Violetta glares at Alfredo and says, He just met me a minute ago!. At the salon, the Baron is asked to give a toast, but he refuses and the crowd turns to Alfredo.
From the next room, the orchestra begins to play and the guests move there to dance. Violetta feels dizzy and asks the guests to go ahead and to leave her to rest for a while to recover. The Baron leaves her alone.
The guests dance in the next room, while Violetta looks at her face in her mirror. She looks pale. Alfredo enters and he expresses his concern for her fragile health and later declares his love for her.
At first Violetta rejects him because his love means nothing to her. However, there is something about Alfredo that touches her heart. Alfredo is about to leave when she gives him a flower, telling him to return it when it has wilted. She promises to meet him the next day.
After the guests leave, Violetta wonders if Alfredo could actually be the one in her life. But she concludes that she needs freedom to live her life. From off stage, Alfredo's voice is heard singing about love as he walks down the street.
Three months later, Alfredo and Violetta are living together in a peaceful country house outside Paris. Violetta has fallen in love with Alfredo and she has completely abandoned her former life.
Alfredo sings of their happy life together Annina, the maid, arrives from Paris, and, when questioned by Alfredo, she tells him that she went there to sell the horses, carriages and everything owned by Violetta to support their country lifestyle.
Alfredo is shocked to learn this and leaves for Paris immediately to settle matters himself. Violetta returns home and receives an invitation from her friend, Flora, inviting her to a party in Paris.
Alfredo's father, Germont, is announced and demands that, for the sake of his family, she break off her relationship with his son. He is reluctantly impressed by Violetta's nobility, which is not what he expected from a courtesan.
Germont reveals that Violetta's relationship with Alfredo has threatened his daughter's engagement because of Violetta's reputation as a courtesan . While she says that she cannot break off her relationship with Alfredo because she loves him so much, Germont pleads with her for the sake of his family.
With growing remorse in her heart, she finally agrees. She bids farewell to Germont. Germont kisses her forehead in a gesture of gratitude for her kindness and sacrifice, before leaving her weeping alone.
Violetta gives a note to Annina to send to Flora as acceptance of the party invitation. As she is writing a farewell letter to Alfredo, he enters. She can barely control her sadness and tears; she tells him repeatedly of her unconditional love before rushing out and handing the farewell letter to her servant to give to Alfredo.
The servant gives the farewell letter to Alfredo. As soon as he finishes reading it, Germont comes in and attempts to comfort his son, reminding him of his family in Provence. Alfredo suspects the Baron is behind his separation with Violetta and the party invitation, which he finds on the desk, strengthens his suspicions. He determines to confront Violetta at the party. Germont tries to stop Alfredo, but he rushes out.
Various versions of the movie Camille were also adapted from the same novel. La Traviata is the opera featured in the 1990 romantic comedy Pretty Woman starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.
The stories of the opera and film have obvious parallels, as both involve respectable men who fall in love with prostitutes and wrestle with the challenges of rescuing the women from their profession. La Traviata is the basis for the Baz Luhrmann musical-drama, Moulin Rouge!.
La Traviata is prominently featured in the first season of Showtime's North American TV series Queer As Folk; that show's character Ted Schmidt proclaims it to be his favorite opera, and it becomes an analogy for a relationship between him and Blake Wyzecki.
