The operatic story loosely based on Dumas’s novel La Dame aux Camélias about the sick courtesan Violetta and her vain desire to extricate herself from the conventions of society has been tugging at audiences’ heartstrings for more than 150 years. Verdi’s moving music romantically idealises Violetta’s ill-fated love for Alfredo and addresses the spectator not only with its theatrical eff ectiveness but also, and primarily, profound and emotive lyrics.

The opera is staged in Italian original version.
Czech and English subtitles are used in the performance.

Approximate running time, including intermissions:
2 hours, 40 minutes, two 20-minute intermissions.
