Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata is based on Alexandre Dumas’s novel La Dame aux camelias, about the famous courtesan and idol of Parisian society in the 1840s. It is in fact the very first significant opera to a contemporary social theme.
In Prague (in the opera house, today´s State Opera), the opera has been staged since the very beginning of its existence, when it took over the production from the German Estates Theatre. The opera primarily afforded the opportunity to host celebrated foreign singers, including the legendary Australian soprano Nellie Melby (18 April 1900).
The most recent production was undertaken in 2006 by a foreign team headed by the French stage director Arnaud Bernard, with the music being explored by the Italian conductor Enrico Dovico. La Traviata is currently one of the most popular Prague Opera titles and has been performed to great acclaim abroad too (including Japan, 2007).

Visit the recently re-opened and newly refurbished grand opera house with a noteworthy history where many world renown artists have worked here making each performance a prime cultural event.
This Neo-classical edifice was built in 1883 by the German Theatre Association as a reaction of German minority in Prague to the opening of the Prague National Theatre.
As the New German Theatre it soon gained international acclaim for its inovative repertoire and artistic leadership including such names as Angelo Neumann, Alexander Zemlinski or Georg Szell.
Nowadays, famous operas, as well as pieces unjustly overlooked or unknown in the Czech Republic are introduced in the State Opera gaining the theatre a reputation of one of the best European scenes where you can enjoy watching mainly opera and ballet performances.
Un grand moment passé avec de très belles voix et une très bonne mise en scène.
Juste un petit regret sur des décors très simplistes.
2h45 de pure magie dans un décor féérique...
Je recommande sans hésitation.
