La Traviata is an opera in four acts after Giuseppe Verdi's music and Franceso Maria Piave's libretto. The libretto is based on the novel "Die Kameliendame" by Alexandre Dumas the Younger published in 1848. Similar to the novel, the opera discusses the fate of a courtesan outlawed by society.
In contrast to the novel, Verdi tried to focus on the individual women's destiny Violetta. La Traviata premiered in 1853, but was considered a failure because of the critical topic.
