About the Event
Enter Verdi's world of forbidden love, and nobility in the face of adversity.
This timeless opera in three acts has become one of the most beloved operas in the whole world. It is also one of the most frequently performed operas at the Estonian National Opera. The libretto by Francesco Maria Piave is based on Alexandre Dumas' play 'La dame aux camélias'. The play was published in 1849 and staged in 1852. Giuseppe Verdi, who attended the premiere, was so fascinated by the play that he chose to base his opera on it. La Traviata premiered the next year. It is a moving love story haunted by the morality of society and Violetta’s past. Ephemeral happiness ends in tragedy.
Enter Verdi's dramatic operatic world as recreated by high‐calibre performers in Tallinn.
Sung in Italian with subtitles in Estonian and English

Stage set, costumes and lighting were excellent, orchestra and choir were fine, some soloists had difficulties with their voices in the beginning of the first act but improved then and were very good in the second and third acts, where especially Aile Asszonyi and Jassi Zahharov gave excellent performance.
