La Traviata shocked the public at its first premiere. Courtesans would never be discussed openly and were definitely not the subject for an opera.
Despite the fact that La Traviata was written in 1853 the story of Violetta is still thought provoking today. A young woman who relies on her beauty in a world in which power, money and status are the only things that matter. Its music and engaging story, has made La Traviata one of the world’s best-known operas.
La Traviata has been produced many times in Göteborg, most recently at Göteborgs Opera with its premiere on 18 April 1998.
