Staging and narrator
A lyrical-theatrical pièce where singing and music blend in an unique show. The pages of La signora delle camelie by Alexandre Dumas (son) alternate with Giuseppe Verdi’s ones creating a dramaturgy thread that born from the reading of some letters of an old patient from Dottor Grenvil: Violetta, her brief but intense life, her love for Alfredo, her renounce.
The fulcrum of the show is the dialogue among Violetta and Germont, between the abandonment in a true love and the social reason that imposes decorum; it’s in this dialogue that it shows the bourgeois drama in which Madamigella Valery, after a pale attempt to oppose to the destiny… gives up.
She gets out of the way in the name of that bourgeois decor much defended by a man tant will regrets his words… finché avrà ciglio lagrime io piangerò… it’s too late! Violetta Valery expires among the arms of her beloved ones.
