La Traviata

Melodrama in three acts
Music by Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto by Francesco Maria Piave

The production of La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi has strong ties to Venice: this opera was performed for the first time on March 6, 1853 in the Gran Teatro La Fenice. Musica a Palazzo is in keeping with the "contemporary instructions" that Verdi wanted in the premiere (which was annoying for its cheeky realism).
The first act opens in the portego (central salon) and the audience is amazed to see that they are Violetta's (Traviata) guests: she toasts with them and one of them knows Alfredo. The second act is performed in the Sala Tiepolo, the beauty and intimacy of which is the perfect place to listen to the delicacy of the main character's “inner speech” and to get excited about her vicissitudes.
The drama of Violetta's illness and death takes place in the bedroom with the alcove and also the wonderful beauty of the stucco decorations of the eighteenth century can distract the audience from the emotional intensity of the singing: the voices of all singers, who are so intimately close, leave all strings vibrate the soul.
