Verdi’s La traviata is famous for its complex and sympathetic portrayal of tragic heroine Violetta, a Parisian courtesan who recounts her life through a series of memories on her deathbed. David McVicar's enduring production of La traviata invites a new reading of the plot, exploring the psychology and innermost feelings of the characters in intimate moments. These scenes are contrasted with decadent turn of the century set pieces in Verdi’s tragedy of a noble love sacrificed
on the altar of bourgeois morality.
