Then there’s the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta, who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It’s a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi and librettist Francesco Maria Piave have given us one of opera’s most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now Lyric Opera of Chicago brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage.
