The objective of Opera Classics Library is to unlock opera's mysteries for the general audience, and enlighten and educate. Understanding and knowledge are the master keys to enhance enjoyment and appreciation of this great art form.Alexandre Dumas, in the final words of his novel, La Dame aux Camelias, dutifully summed up the sense of poignancy that became the basis of one of Verdi's most treasured operas: "Sleep in peace, Marguerite! Much will be forgiven you for you have greatly loved." La Traviata is an intimate portrait of a woman's agonizing defeat against the forces of destiny. Verdi's music score is a tone poem that musically captures the story's profound human passions and psychological depth
