Davide Livermore is the director, the second time for him at the Maggio after Rigoletto, and of the Violetta’s tragedy in the revolutionary scenery of 1968 Paris, during the heats of the student’s protest of those years. The cast will be really extraordinary: Nadine Sierra as Violetta, Francesco Meli (one of the most inflential Verdi exponent) as Alfredo and two of the most beautiful and recognizable voices of the last 50 years in the role of Giorgio Germont: Leo Nucci and Plàcido Domingo. “Not to provoke – says Livermore – but to tell this story more closely, to develop the richness and modernity of the masterpiece Verdi and also the scandal he created in the society of that time, in 1853. This in full respect, word by word, note by note, of the libretto and the score ”. “Even the love between Violetta and Alfredo is equally strong and revolutionary” continues the director “is that of a young and beautiful prostitute, Violetta, who thanks to it embarks on a real path of personal redemption“.
