The novel The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas (Son) strongly affected Giuseppe Verdi who always searched, characters for his operas, for themes with dramatic plots and interesting. It is full of transparent and touching music, in which the world of the Italian bel canto blends splendidly intertwines with a strong emotional expression. The new production of the opera evergreen is being prepared by the SND Opera in a stellar solo cast under the baton of the conductor Robert Jindra, with an attractive stage concept by the Italian team led by Roberto Catalano.
