La Traviata, created by Giuseppe Verdi, premiered on March 6, 1853 at the La Fenice theater in Venice…And it was a total disaster. Today it is one of the most popular and most performed operas in the world. The impossible love between a courtesan and a young bourgeois in the 19th century exposes once again the problem of the society of “what will they say”, in which respectability and appearances are more important than love and its essence.
This production was filmed without an audience, which allowed the set designer to use the theater in its entirety. In the stalls, the boxes, the stairs, the lounge, the corridors, they become a stage that takes the viewer to an immersive experience, face to face with the protagonists and almost collide with the partygoers and even in the room where the tragic final scene takes place. A new way to discover this masterpiece.
On the podium of the Orchestra of the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome, its musical director, maestro Daniele Gatti, conducts the opera, while Mario Martone signs the direction and scenes of this new opera-films with a libretto inspired by La Dama of the Camellias by Alexander Dumas Jr.
