La Traviata is the tale of a woman of questionable virtue sacrificing her happiness for the man she loves. Violetta Valéry is based on an actual person who was portrayed in the famed novel The Lady of the Camellias, which also inspired the movie “Pretty Woman” starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. Newcomers will likely recognize much of the music in this renowned opera, featured prominently in that popular 1990 romantic comedy.
