The sumptuous ear candy and easy-to-follow storyline of Verdi’s La traviata make it a popular entry point to opera. Violetta, a high-society courtesan in 19th-century Paris, falls in love with Alfredo Germont, a young nobleman. Their romance ignites a powder keg of scandal, deceit, and disgrace–and begins to threaten Violetta’s own failing health. Verdi’s score is so iconic that it’s hard not to sing along to the intoxicating party anthem “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” or the tender duet “Un di, felice, eterea,” where Alfredo passes a note to Violetta and asks her to check the box if she likes him back. But there’s just as much to savor in hidden gems such as “Di provenza il mar, il suol,” during which Alfredo’s father comforts his heartbroken son with a loving baritone that doesn’t tell all it knows. By the opera’s end, audiences will understand why it caused Julia Roberts to burst into tears during Pretty Woman—and from whom Nicole Kidman’s character contracted her tuberculosis in Moulin Rouge!.
