Description

At the 1853 world premiere of La Traviata, censors balked at the contemporary edge of its subject matter, and audiences were scandalized by Verdi’s frank, unsentimental depiction of a high-society courtesan in love. Yet La Traviata endures as a masterpiece, and in this new COC production, renowned director Arin Arbus sets this story of devotion and sacrifice in the demimonde of 1850s Paris, evoking the social realities, rhythms, and debauchery of a rapidly changing society.

Sung in Italian with English SURTITLES.
