G. VERDI: LA TRAVIATA – OPERA

  With La Traviata (1853) Giuseppe Verdi managed to successfully create one of his most enduring works.

With the selection of a theme concerning a goodhearted courtier, Verdi stepped on the toes of the middle class, whose expectation of opera was a reinforcement of their false morality.

Happy December For a start, we’ll make full use of Happy December (Veseli December), going downtown to see the lights and get something warm to eat and drink from the stalls. People travel for miles to enjoy the scenes here, and a bag of chestnuts and cup of mulled wine while walking around, or sitting under a blanket at a café, is one of the real treats of the season.
