About

In few words:

Who does not know the story of La Traviata? Inspired by the life of Marie Duplessis in La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas, Verdi composed the grand opera of feminine tragedy: a drama where, in the name of debauchery, society authorises extremes of sentiment and affronts the modesty of the most fragile emotions with an unhealthy voyeurism. Torn between love and moral duty, the heroine succumbs to the disease that corrupts both her body and her soul, a soul inured to self‑sacrifice. Like Manet’s Olympia, in Benoît Jacquot’s production the character of Violetta is exposed to the predatory gaze of spectators who have come to denude her.
