Opera by Giuseppe Verdi

Italian original version with Czech and English surtitles
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).

The performances from all of the performers were of good quality. The interaction between Violeta and Alfredo lacked sincerity at times. However, overall the singing was good The gentleman playing Germont sang with real quality as did Violeta.
Un opéra de grande qualité , des chanteurs musiciens et danseurs tres professionnels;
The simple scenary was very effective at conveying the mood in each scene and the quality of the vocals and the orchestra was excellent. However the male lead was a little hard to hear at times and was a bit overwhelmed by the very strong soprano. Also some guests felt a little uncomfortable with the nudity in scene 2 of act 2 and asked whether it was needed.
we enjoy this great show with marvellous singers in a magnifique theater
An excellent performance in a lovely Theatre.
