Verdi’s tragic tale of a Parisian courtesan who sacrifices all for love is vividly presented in Richard Eyre’s production of LA TRAVIATA. Alfredo and the courtesan Violetta fall passionately in love, but Alfredo’s father Giorgio disapproves of their relationship. Giorgio convinces Violetta that she must leave Alfredo, for the family’s sake – not realizing that Violetta is very ill. Alfredo, distraught, believing that Violetta has left him out of self-interest, is enraged. When Violetta is on her deathbed Giorgio understands the extent her sacrifice. He confesses all to Alfredo, who is with Violetta as she dies.
