Based on Alexandre Dumas’ The Lady of the Camellias, this tragedy of a high-society courtesan who sacrifices everything to protect the honor of her lover brought legendary status to Giuseppe Verdi. In this elegant staging, director David McVicar sets the drama in a world of romantic references while retaining an up-to-date perspective.
