Paris, 1850s. A young woman in the demimonde tries to follow her heart, but societal pressures force her to leave the man she loves, and an incurable illness takes care of the rest. Glittering parties contrast with quiet desperation, and passionate music underscores all-consuming emotions.

Based on Alexandre Dumas’ novel The Lady of the Camellias, Verdi’s opera scandalized Italy when it premiered in 1853, but swiftly became one of the most popular operas in the world. Come see why.
