The Venue's History in few words …

The theatre, opened in 1850, became the centre of Madrid’s artistic and social life.

 

The works performed most were the operas of Verdi, Meyerbeer, Bellini, Donizetti, Rossini and later Wagner. Spanish opera also featured, with works by Ruperto Chapí, Tomás Bretón and Emilio Serrano. In 1916-1917 Ballets Russes de Diaghilev performed here in the presence of Nijinsky and Stravinsky.

 

Victim of an explosion during the civil war, the rebuilt theatre reopened its doors in 1966 as a concert hall, home of the Orquesta y Coro Nacional de España and later home of the Orquesta y Coro de la RTVE.

 

In 1977, the theatre was declared a National Monument. But in 1988, the Auditorio Nacional began to put on concerts and this led to the closure of the Teatro Real. It was then completely renovated and reopened in 1997 as a venue mainly for operas and ballets. The reopening of the Teatro Real in Madrid in 1997, completely refurbished and endowed with cutting edge technology for the stage area, lead Spain into an authentic “boom” in the world of opera that has had its repercussion throughout the last decade.

 

Over the last thirteen years, the theatre has offered 78 new productions, 20 world premières, as well as rescuing more than twenty works of Spanish lyric repertory from oblivion and presenting operas to the Spanish public that have never been seen in Spain, with some of the most important world class signers as protagonists.

 

In an effort to assure that the opera reach an increasingly diverse audience, the Teatro Real has carried out a variety of activities, from the broadcasting of some of the operas on giant screens outside the theatre, transmission to cinemas, universities, etc.

 

The recent installation of a sophisticated system for filming operas in HD and their consequent transmission via satellite reinforces the effort of the Teatro Real to each day open its doors a little more to the an international audience, especially to those from Europe and Latin America to whom we have been united by historical and cultural ties for centuries.

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.
