La Traviata Opera by Giuseppe Verdi at Stanislavsky Musical Theatre
April 22, 2018 19:42

April 29, 2018, in Moscow - Tragic love story of a fallen woman. Maria Pakhar with a fascinating soft soprano performs the leading part.
The libretto of the opera is based on the autobiographical novel "The Lady with the Camellias" by Alexander Duma Jr. The book won him fame of nearly a debauchee, and the only person to see the true meaning in the work was Giuseppe Verdi. That’s how the opera La Traviata was born; catcalled and booed at first, it ramped up over and above.

At the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theatre, "La Traviata" is performed by young opera singers, and its modern interpretation by stage director Alexander Titel, gives it vitality and dynamism. They go lightly here about proprieties and morals: though Verdi wrote a story of heart-felt love, the main character of this story was still a courtesan. The last love of a fallen woman and the realization of her own fall – that is the real tragedy of La Traviata. The action is set in France, where courtesan Violetta revels in rich boyfriends, who shower her with money for a night spent with her. She walks in golden slippers, second to none of courtesans, and receives the richest men in her bed. Once she meets Alfred Jermont, who is secretly carried away by her beauty and has true feelings towards her. They go headlong into a romantic relationship, but Alfred's father opposes it and does everything possible to separate them. He succeeds in badly offending Violetta, so she desperately falls back into her old lifestyle to forget her love as a terrible dream. But a terrible dream is ahead, since it soon becomes clear that the girl is deadly sick...

Violetta performers must be not only virtuoso singers, but “have a dramatic and at the same time light Verdi soprano as well as an outstanding acting talent”, according to Yuri Temirkanov. The opera is performed in Italian.
