Venice. March 6th 1853. La Traviata, the Giuseppe Verdi’s opera based upon La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas, fils, was experiencing its (disastrous) debut. The public did not like at all the performance and made fun of Violetta, the main role played by soprano, Fanny Salvini-Donatelli. Fortunately, time passed as people’s perception of art evolved and now La Traviata is one of the most popular Verdi’s works. Now, Florence is welcoming a new rendition of the famous text.
Next Saturdays 8th and 15th June, at 9:00 pm, Verdi’s Violetta and Alfredo will step into the stage again at the Auditorium al Duomo. As you can see, in case you want to go, you are still on time to get your tickets. The prices vary from 20€ to 50€. You can consult the conditions on this website.
Of course, if you are going to see the show, you should remember that, after it, the most comfortable room will be waiting for you at Il Salviatino, your 5 stars hotel in Florence.
