There is the super-popular opera melodrama by G. Verdi - La Traviata on the stage of the Great Hall of the Astrakhan State Opera and Ballet Theater. The prototype of the main character was the famous Parisian courtesan Marie Duplessi, whose beauty and extraordinary mind attracted many prominent people. Then “The Lady with the Camellias” immediately won the audience’s attention and was staged in all the theaters of Europe. Premiere was attended by Verdi in Paris, who soon began creating an opera.
La Traviata is one of the first lyrico-psychological operas in the world opera literature. It’s an intimate drama of strong and deep feelings. The dramatic plot, simplicity and routine of intrigue allowed G. Verdi to create a truly realistic work, striking with its truthfulness and touching with humanity. The rhythms and melodies of everyday music are widely used in the opera. They are mainly waltz, sometimes cheerful and graceful, sometimes dramatic and sorrowful.
The main director Konstantin Balakin and the chief artist Elena Vershinina created a new scenic embodiment of the well-known plot! The modern interpretation renewed this story, but its meaning remains the same. The story of Violetta, who died not from a disease, but from loneliness being among people, will not leave the audience indifferent.
