La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi
Set in Paris in the mid-1800s, Violetta, a beautiful courtesan gives up the frills and fancies of high society for the love of a younger man, Alfredo. They begin a life together but their happiness is ruined when Alfredo’s father pressures Violetta to break the marriage for the reputation of his family. She loves Alfredo so much that she listens to his father and disappears. Alfredo believes she has merely thrown him over. When he later learns of her sacrifice and finds out that she is dying, he sets out to find her.
