Sonya Yoncheva reprises her widely praised interpretation of the heroine Violetta Valéry in Verdi’s La Traviata. Michael Fabiano is her lover, Alfredo, Thomas Hampson, in one of his most acclaimed Met roles, returns as Alfredo’s protective father, Giorgio Germont. San Francisco Opera Music Director Nicola Luisotti conducts.

La Traviata premiered at Venice’s Teatro la Fenice in 1853, and survived a notoriously unsuccessful opening night to become one of the best-loved operas in the repertoire. Following the larger-scale dramas of Rigoletto and Il Trovatore, its intimate scope and subject matter inspired the composer to create some of his most profound and heartfelt music. The title role of the “fallen woman” has captured the imaginations of audiences and performers alike with its inexhaustible vocal and dramatic possibilities—and challenges. Violetta is considered a pinnacle of the soprano repertoire.

In a remarkable career spanning six decades in the theater, Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) composed 28 operas, at least half of which are at the core of today’s repertoire. Francesco Maria Piave (1810–1876) was Verdi’s librettist during his productive middle period, who also worked with him on Ernani, Macbeth, Rigoletto, and La Forza del Destino, among others. Alexandre Dumas fils (1824–1895) was the son of the author of The Three Musketeers. The play La Dame aux Camélias is based on his own novel of the same name.

With La Traviata, Verdi and Piave fashioned an opera from a play set in contemporary times—an exception in the composer’s long career. Dumas’s La Dame aux Camélias was a meditation on the author’s youthful affair with the celebrated prostitute Marie Duplessis, known as a sophisticated and well-read woman whose charms and tact far surpassed her station. The play is still staged today in its original form and exists in several film incarnations, most notably Greta Garbo’s Camille (1936).

After the opening night performance, The New York Times observed that “A soprano grows into her stardom… It was a revelation to hear Ms. Yoncheva’s voice… She sounded wonderful throughout… Her voice was suffused with warmth.” The Huffington Post proclaimed, “Traviata shines anew at the Met with Yoncheva and Fabiano… A memorable operatic outing.” Mezzo soprano Isabel Leonard hosts the broadcast.

Nulla occorrà... sollecita, se puoi

Trae dal seno una lettera
"Teneste la promessa... la disfida
Ebbe luogo! il barone fu ferito,
Però migliora Alfredo
È in stranio suolo; il vostro sacrifizio
Io stesso gli ho svelato;
Egli a voi tornerà pel suo perdono;
Io pur verrò. Curatevi... meritate
Un avvenir migliore. -
Giorgio Germont".
È tardi!
Si alza
Attendo, attendo né a me giungon mai! . . .
Si guarda allo specchio
Oh, come son mutata!
Ma il dottore a sperar pure m'esorta!
Ah, con tal morbo ogni speranza è morta.
Addio, del passato bei sogni ridenti,
Le rose del volto già son pallenti;
L'amore d'Alfredo pur esso mi manca,
Conforto, sostegno dell'anima stanca
Ah, della traviata sorridi al desio;
A lei, deh, perdona; tu accoglila, o Dio,
Or tutto finì.
Le gioie, i dolori tra poco avran fine,
La tomba ai mortali di tutto è confine!
Non lagrima o fiore avrà la mia fossa,
Non croce col nome che copra quest'ossa!
Ah, della traviata sorridi al desio;
A lei, deh, perdona; tu accoglila, o Dio.
Or tutto finì!

English Libretto or Translation:

Nothing will happen to me …
But please hurry.
Annina goes out. Violetta draws a letter from her breast and reads it in a low voice, speaking in time to the music.
"You kept your promise ...
The duel took place.
The Baron was wounded,
But is getting better ...
Alfredo is abroad.
I have told him of your sacrifice.
He is coming back to ask your pardon …
I shall come too.
Take care of yourself ...
You deserve a better future.
Georges Germont .-
It's too late!
getting up
I wait and wait, but they never come!
She looks at herself in the glass.
How changed I am!
But the Doctor still urges me to hope!
With such a disease
All hope is dead!

Farewell, happy dreams of by?gone days;
The roses in my cheeks already are faded.
Even Alfredo's love is lacking,
To comfort and uphold my weary spirit.
Oh, comfort, sustain an erring soul,
And may God pardon and make her his own!
Ah, all is over,
All is over now.
