Experience the glamour and romance of Verdi's essential opera about a beautiful courtesan who dedicates her remaining days to decadent parties in the face of certain death.
High-flying Violetta lives like every day is her last. In the glitz and glamour of the Art Deco era, she fills her nights with crazy parties and her days with rich admirers who reward her with anything she wants. Enter a nice man declaring his true love for her. Get in line, she thinks—but then, bam! She falls for this one, hard and fast. He's great and completely cool with her past. (If only everyone else were too.) In a twist of fate, Violetta must face a heart-breaking sacrifice, one that will surely doom her last chance at happiness.
