La Traviata

“Speak Not Of Love To One Who Knows Not What It Is”

Festival Theatre

03 May - 10 May 2014
Season Closed

A lively company is gathered in the house of the celebrated courtesan Violetta Valéry. The young Alfredo Germont has been brought to the party by his friend Gastone; he has long admired Violetta and during her recent illness has inquired after her health every day. Alfredo is called upon to propose a toast. Violetta asks Aldred to forget her, as she can offer him only friendship. Left alone, Violetta ponders on Alfredo’s declaration but persuades herself that it would be madness to abandon the life of pleasure she now leads.
