OperaPulse’s Aria of the Week – La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi is, by far, one of the most popular operas to date. Why? Well, Verdi composed beautiful and entrancing music around an already very popular story. The opera is based on the successful play and novel, La Dame aux camélias, by Alexandre Dumas, fils. The tragic story is based on the author’s courtesan Marie Duplessis – known as Violetta Valery in the opera.
La Traviata is filled with famous tunes and melodies – Libiamo ne’ lieti calici, Sempre libera, Di Provenza il mar. Here is a look and listen at Alfredo’s aria: De miei bollenti spiriti (Wild my dream of ecstasy). This aria opens the second act of the opera when we find Alfredo and Violetta happily living together. Violetta has abandoned her life as a courtesan and Alfredo could not be any happier because of that. He sings of his happy life with Violetta and how much she loves him.
