Verdi's La Traviata: Consumptive heroine Violetta Valéry peels back the excruciating layers of that choice in Verdi’s exquisite tragedy set in and around 18th-century Paris. Finding a transporting love in young Alfredo, Violetta disappears into the hedonism of the demimonde to spare him the pain of her death.
For a special La traviata Behind the Scenes discussion, come to Quail Ridge Books & Music in Raleigh on February 18 at 7:00 PM. This event is free, open to the public, and is co-sponsored by Quail Ridge Books & Music and WCPE-89.7 FM.
