Social scandal provides the setting for Verdi’s operatic version of La Dame aux camélias, and scandal is what the opera itself provoked when it was first seen in 1853. For any such tale of true love thwarted by society’s conventions has always held a prurient fascination, even more so when the ‘fallen woman’ evolves into a sympathetic and tragic heroine. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
