About

In few words:

“I want subjects that are new, noble, great, varied and daring. Daring to the point of excess, new in form and ideally suited to composition...” So wrote Verdi in 1853. By appropriating Alexandre Dumas’ novel La Dame aux camélias, Verdi tackles the tragic story of the impossible love between a courtesan and a young bourgeois gentleman in an era marked by patriarchy. Violetta is a passionate, touching, scandalous woman who is powerless in the face of stifling social conventions.

Famous for his adaptations and reinterpretations of classical texts and his hyperrealist scenography, Simon Stone sets La Traviata in the Paris of today. His “Violetta 2.0” is an arresting public figure who circulates in a world epitomised by excess, obsessed by appearances and desperate for the recognition that the social networks seem to promise.
