About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Verdi at New York's remarkable Metropolitan Opera House.
Giuseppe Verdi was an Italian opera composer. From a young age, he developed a musical education with the help of a patron and soon dominated the Italian opera. In fact by his 30s, he became one of the most influential opera composer all over the classical scene. His most famous operas are Il Trovatore, Rigoletto and La Traviata. Furthermore, he was able to establish himself as a landowner with the income from his successful operas and focus on his private life. However, he soon returned to the scene with his new popular work Aida 1871, and three masterpieces: Otello, Requiem and Falstaff.
'La Traviata' is a three-act opera by Verdi based on Alexandre Dumas' novel 'The Lady with the Camellias' (1852). An opera about “a lady of pleasure” was shocking in the 1850’s, and the opera initailly failed, but went on to become one of the most frequently staged operas in the world. The main character is the courtesan Violetta, and the story traces her love affair with the young Alfredo Germont.
