The work that concludes the programme for the 83rd Festival is one of Giuseppe Verdi’s most popular works. La traviata, directed by Francesco Micheli, in a staging which forms part of the “Verdi Trilogy” projects proposed by the Maggio, staged for just one performance on 22 July in an interpretation that has all the characteristics of a true gala thanks to the presence, in the lead roles, of Sonya Yoncheva, Plácido Domingo and Francesco Demuro.

The three operas, TrovatoreRigoletto and Traviata have been staged as related works. There are two common threads running through the trilogy. The first is a monumental Italian flag which opens the first scene of each of the titles, combined with a set characterised by a number of repeated items, varied and characterised according to the context with lighting and the predominant colours of green, white and red, which change in accordance with each opera. The second element is the Choir, a choir which according to Giuseppe Verdi is a single character which binds, passes through and migrates from the three operas, which do not have a unitarity as such, but which penetrate deeply into the collective imagination, joined through the sometimes contrasting emotions of passion. The predominant colour for this Traviata, is white.
