Visit: I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma, Rome, LazioThe Orchestra I Virtuosi dell’opera di Roma, formed by professors of the most prestigious Italian conservatories, is specialized in performing whole opera repertoire, specially from the Italian lyrical tradition. “La Traviata”, the most famous opera by Giuseppe Verdi, set in Paris in mid 1800’, narrates the impossible love between Violetta, a well-known courtesan, and Alfredo, a young good-looking nobleman. Since its beginning, their story is predestined to end in tragedy. During a party, courtesan Violetta discovers that Alfredo loves her since one year. A short while afterwards they are living together near Paris, but because of her past behaviour, Alfredo’s father asks her to leave him. Violetta sacrifices herself and Alfredo, unaware, hurts her. A few months later Violetta is dying. Soon Alfredo is there at her bedside. Crying out that she feels life returning, she falls dead in his arms. The Orchestra I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma usually perform in the elegant Salone Margherita Theatre and in the prestigious Church of St. Paul within the Walls in Rome.
