In the decadent scene of the Paris underground, worldly courtesan Violetta Valery finds true love for the first time—the young, romantic Alfredo Germont. But when she attempts to escape the life that has been slowly—and literally—killing her, she finds her world just won’t let her go. Verdi brings to life the bittersweet human quest for love and redemption with signature style and masterful musical power. Trust us…there’s a reason this one’s a fan-favorite.
