Product Details


LA TRAVIATA (The Fallen Woman) is based on "La Dame aux camélias" (1852), a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils. The opera was originally titled "Violetta," after the main character. Piave and Verdi wanted to follow Dumas in giving the opera a contemporary setting, but the authorities at La Fenice insisted that it be set in the past, ca. 1700. It was not until the 1880’s that the composer’s and librettist’s original wishes were carried out and “realistic” productions were staged. LA TRAVIATA has become immensely popular and is among the most frequently performed of all operas. This reduced orchestration by Osbourne McConathy is intended to make the work accessible to a wider number of opera companies. Instrumentation: 1(d.Piccc).1.2.1: Timp.Perc(2): Str (4-4-3-3-3): Vocal soli (12 roles, SSATTTBBBBBB): Chorus: SCORE NOT AVAILABLE. Use score from full orchestration, Kalmus # A234101.
