The Venue's History in few words …

Even though there is proof that an opéra performance took place in Rome as early as 1606, (Agazzari's EUMELIO), the Pope's ban on théâtre and opéra performances was for many years an obstacle in the local development of opéra. In spite of the fact that a public opéra théâtre was inaugurated in 1697, no major composer was linked with the papal city until the opening of the présent opéra house in 1880. Opéra in Rome was far from inexistent during the nineteenth century: Rossini came to première his BARBER OF SEVILLE at the Teatro Argentina in 1816, and Verdi four of his works, including II TROVATORE (1853) and UN BALLO IN MASCHERA (1859) at the Teatro Apollo.

But in 1877, the city that had in the meantime become the capital of Italy was still without a modem opéra house. Domenico Costanzi, who had made a fortune in the hôtel business, had the good idea of bequeathing his name to the Eternal City by funding the construction of an opéra house, which was opened three years later. Roman operatic life was thus revived, and, from 1880 to 1926, the Teatro Costanzi hosted no less than 46 world premières and 120 Roman premières. Thèse premières, ail signed by Italian composers, included triumphant performances of Mascagni's CAVALLERIA RUSTICANA and Puccini's TOSCA. Furthermore, it was here that the Roman public discovered PARSIFAL in 1884, while Toscanini made his Roman début in the house's pit, conducting... CARMEN. In 1926. the théâtre fell into the hands of the fascist state, which renovated and modernized the building. When the house reopened two years later, rebaptized "Teatro Reale dell'Opera", the tradition of "national"premières was of course pursued, and one could hear composers such as Respighi and Malipiero, as weil as Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and even Berg's WOZZECK in 1942. In 1937, the now famous open-air summer concerts were inaugurated in the Caracalla thermal baths.

In 1946, the institution adopted the name of Teatro dell'Opera and interna-tionalized its répertoire, while remaining faithful to contemporary music, as works by composers such as Britten, Honegger, Hindemith, Janâcek, and Henze were performed. It was also on this stage that Renata Tebaldi was applauded in 1948, and Maria Callas (in the rôle of Kundry in PARSIFAL!) in 1949. In spite offinancial difficulties, the house's artistic directors have, during these last few décades, deftly managed to keep alive the creativity and the luster of the Roman stage.

Synopsis

La Traviata

LA TRAVIATA: AN EXCITING AND PASSIONATE OPERA
La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi is a popular opera played over three parts, and set to a beautiful Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave.

Telling the tale of a fallen woman, the opera is based on an original play adapted from a novel entitled 'La Dame aux Camélias' by Alexandre Dumas, the younger son of the famous French writer. Though both Verdi and Piave wished to adhere to Dumas' contemporary setting, authorities at La Fenice were adamant that it should be set in the 1700's. It was only in the 1880's that the opera was finally performed in the contemporary setting that Verdi had intended. However, it was not well recieved until it was again revised.

HISTORY
The most performed opera in the world according to Operaboard 2012/2013, and certainly one of the most popular, La Traviata is set in early 18th century Paris and tells the tale of Violetta, a courtesan.

Act 1
A fabulous party is thrown to celebrate the recovery from illness of famous Parisian courtesan, Violetta Valéry. Count Gastone has brought along his friend, the young noble Alfredo Germont who is in love with Violetta. Gastone tells Violetta that during her illness Alfredo visited her home every daym abnd she wonders if he could be 'the one'. However, Violetta's lover Baron Douphol is not impressed and refuses to toast her creating the opening for Alfredo to sing a drinking song in her honour.

Act 2
Scene 1:
Violetta has given up her life in Paris and has moved with Alfredo to her country home. Annina the maid has been to Paris to sell Violetta's belongings to support them and when Alfredo discovers this he leaves for Paris. Alfredo's father, Giorgio Germont visits Violetta to beg her to break up with his son since her reputation is ruining his daughter's engagement. She finally agrees and is seen weeping alone. Leaving a farewell note with her servant for Alfredo, Violetta leaves for Paris.
Scene 2: Party at Flora's house
Everyone is shocked to hear of the break up of Violetta and Alfredo. She arrives at the party with Baron Douphol. Alfredo says it will be he who leaves with her and wins a lot of money at the gambling table. Alfredo won't believe that Violetta no longer loves him and forces her to say that she is in love with the Baron. Alfredo throws the money at Violetta to 'pay for her services'. Giorgio enters looking for his son Alfredo and immediately realises what has happened. The Baron and Alfredo decide to fight a duel.

Act 3
Her tuberculosis has returned and Violetta doesn't have long to live when a letter from Alfredo's father informing her that the Baron was only wounded. He has told Alfredo of the sacrifice Violetta made for him and his sister. It is too late and Violetta is aware of this when Alfredo rushes in. She dies in his arms.
