Would you let your son marry her?

La Traviata is one of the most popular operas by Verdi.

The plight of Violetta, a courtesan in 19th century Paris, is relevent to us regardless of whether we see her as a courtesan, or a 21st century professional business woman. Violetta, her lover Alfred, and Alfred's father Germond, all suffer from agony caused by love, an experience that we can relate to.

SYNOPSIS

Violetta is sick and knows she will die soon when she meets Alfred who offers her true love. She decides to depart from the fashionable Parisian society to live with him in the countryside. Then Gemond, Alfred’s father visited her and asked her to end the relationship with Alfred because her ex-profession was causing social problem.

Violetta returned to her luxurious but empty life in Paris without telling Alfred, and she was filled with sorrow. Alfred was full of resentment and when he found Violetta, he accused her in public.

After a few months, Violetta lies in bed dying. Finally, Alfred rushes to her after being given a true account by his father. Alfred asks her to forgive him and they swear to live together, but the time is up. She passed away in Alfred's arms.
