Live Performance on July 2nd , 2013 in historic gardens of Colorno Reggia (PR). The melodrama in three acts taken from theather piece of Alexandre Dumas “The lady of the Camelie”, in the yearning of his music, and in the love affair between Alfredo and Violetta, always wins every spectator’s love.
ACT I: Paris. Mid-nineteenth century. There is a party at Violetta Valèry’s house, a famous socialite, whose health is gravely in danger. A nobel man, Gastone, introduces his friend Alfredo to the landlady: the interest that Violetta shows in the new acquaintance does not escape Duphol, her habitual lover. While Violetta and Alfredo are dancing, the young man declares her all his love and Violetta, for the first time, falls in love.
ACT II: Alfredo and Violetta live happily ever after in a country house. Alfredo discovers by the waitress Annina that Violetta is selling her jewels because she ran out of money. Violetta receives the unexpected visit from Alfredo’s father, Giorgio Germont, who accuses her of having misled his son, and he wants to separate the young lovers. The woman does what seems right to her and abandones Alfredo, who is seized by jealousy and unaware of the virtuous gesture of his beloved. Violetta decides to return to high-society parties and goes to Flora’s home accompanied by Duphol, going back to her usual old life. Alfredo is at Flora’s home too and offends Violetta in front of the guests, in a fit of anger caused by his jealousy. Baron Duphol challenges Alfredo to a duel.
ACT III: Violetta’s health got worse. By now, she is in a bed dying, phthisis let her only few hours. She receives a letter from Giorgio Germont: at last he decided to explain all to his son and Alfredo arrives at her bedside. Violetta is fantastically happy, Alfredo is there... his father too, deeply regretted. But it’s late... phthisis kills Violetta in front of them, in an atmosphere of huge sorrow.
