Giuseppe Verdi La Traviata
Alexandre Dumas the Younger’s 1852 play La Dame aux Camélias, a semi-autobiographical work recounting a tragic love story between a courtesan and a young bourgeois, was such a runaway success on stage that Verdi set to adapt it to music within a year.
Though its premiere was a fiasco, leaving Verdi reluctant to authorise subsequent productions, it has since become a staple of the operatic repertoire.
