The courtesan Violetta Valéry has everything her heart desires: rich lovers, friends and money. She falls in love with the young Alfredo, but his father disapproves and persuades Violetta to leave his son alone. Violetta finishes the relationship with Alfredo, but the young man is incensed. Not knowing that Violetta is seriously ill, he only comes to his senses when he understands the sacrifice she has made for him. He goes to see Violetta and she dies in his arms… This opera by Guiseppe Verdi is performed by the Nederlandse Reisopera (Dutch Travelling Opera) and Scapino Ballet.
