Act 1

A party at Violetta’s salon. Among the guests there is Alfredo Germont, who falls in love with the beautiful courtesan from the first sight. Almost immediately he notices that the girl is ill. Alfredo asks Violetta to take care of herself, to change her lifestyle. She is touched by the young man’s sincerity and agrees to go on a date with him.

Left alone, Violetta dreams of happy future with Alfred, with whom she fell in love and decides to break with shameful past.

Act 2

Lovers spend a few happy months on a villa outside the city. Violetta receives an invitation to a ball from Flora, and she accepts it.

Having waited for Alfredo to go, Giorgio Germont approaches Violetta and asks her to leave his son as their relationship is a disgrace to their family, and she also stands in the way to Alfredo’s career.

For the sake of this Violetta promises to part with Alfred.

Act 3

A party at Flora’s house. Everybody already knows about break between Violetta and Alfredo.

Violetta comes accompanied by the Baron, whom Alfred believes to be his opponent.

During a game of cards, there is a sharp dispute between them that could turn into a duel.

Violetta asks Alfredo to leave the ball, but he does not want to go without her. Alfredo misunderstands her refusal as betrayal and, filled with anger, insults her.

Act 4

Seriously ill Violetta lives with memories of the happy days with Alfred, whom she still loves. She rereads a letter from Giorgio Germont: “Alfred knows the truth about your noble self-sacrifice and will soon return to you.”

Unfortunately, the joy of the meeting is short. Surrounded by caring friends, Violetta dies.
