La traviata is set in the world of Parisian high society. This popular opera tells the story of the courtesan, Violetta Valéry: her loves and her sad fate. It is based on the dramatic adaptation of the romantic novel, La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas fils, modelled by the author on the high-class mistress, Marie Duplessis. Giuseppe Verdi then took the story, making its heroine a contemporary woman, and writing an innovative opera in which he raised the role of the music itself to that of expressing the story's emotions. Starting with "Libiamo ne' lieti calici", which has become a well-known, staple tune of gala concerts, the work features numerous other famous songs, such as Violetta's most technically demanding aria, "Ah, fors'è lui... Sempre libera", in the prelude foretelling tragedy, and Germont's "Di Provenza il mar".

The director, Vincent Boussard, is noted for sophisticated staging with an unerring eye for colour. His production of La traviata (first staged in 2015) displays that aesthetic sensibility. At the same time, he effectively holds up a mirror on the world to paint an imagined landscape, taking the theme of a woman's fate in the world of men. Upon curtain fall, we are left with the vivid picture of a woman who has lived her life with unwavering pride.

Anita Hartig, who has charmed many audience around the world, stars at the leading role Violetta. She will be partnered by Italian tenor Matteo Desole as Alfredo, who has played this role at Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, and the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence among others. And Albanian bartione Gezim Myshketa will sing one of the notable baritone roles, Giorgio Germont. Andriy Yurkevych will come back to the orchestra pit at Opera Palace.
