La Traviata in Russian
"Parigi, o cara" (Dear Paris). In the French capital lives Violetta Valery, a young woman who loves entertainment and lightness in her life and sentiments. She is firmly convinced that true love is just an invention.
This ironclad belief falls apart when the young woman meets Alfredo. Giuseppe Verdi put into music the famous theater piece by Alexandre Dumas which even today continues to move audiences.
Laura Castellani has adapted with simplicity and pathos, the libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. The text is accompanied by lyrical and evocative illustrations by Beata Malinowska.
