If you knew you were dying, would you choose a selfish or virtuous life? Consumptive heroine Violetta Valéry peels back the excruciating layers of that choice in Verdi’s exquisite tragedy set in and around 18th-century Paris.
Finding a transporting love in young Alfredo, Violetta disappears into the hedonism of the demimonde to spare him the pain of her death. Torn between her moral nature and her desperate circumstance, Jacqueline Echols, who dazzled last season as Musetta in La bohème, will haunt audiences with “Addio, del passato,” Violetta’s deathbed farewell.
