This is a ballet and opera production you should not miss!
La Traviata is an opera by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi. It premiered at the La Fenice Opera House in Venice on March 6, 1853. La Traviata means the fallen woman or one who goes astray and refers to the main character, Violetta Valéry, a courtesan.
La Traviata’s story is about the courtesan Violetta and Alfredo, the man who falls for her and whom she loves in return. While the passion between them is intense, Violetta is torn, as Alfredo’s father Giorgio asked her to make the supreme sacrifice of leaving Alfredo so his sister would be able to marry properly. Violetta’s illness returns and she is reunited momentarily with Alfredo.
This opera was made into a full ballet by multi-awarded Filipino prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde of Ballet Manila.
3 opera singers will perform live, namely Anna Migallos, Mher U. Nival, and Roby Malubay.
