La Traviata (“The Fallen Woman”) is a touching yet tragic love story, which is nevertheless also an indictment of social prejudice and sexism of the 1800s. The work is the only one of Verdi’s operas set in what was the composer’s “present day” and looks forward to verismo operas of the end of the 19th century. La Traviata is the third of Verdi’s great trio of operas, following Rigoletto and Il Trovatore , which cemented him as Italy’s greatest, if not the world’s, greatest composer.
