Verdi's 'La Traviata' is an opera in three acts set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It is based on La dame aux Camélias (1852), a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, fils. Violetta Valéry, a famed courtesan, throws a lavish party at her Paris salon to celebrate her recovery from an illness. Gastone, a viscount, has brought with him a friend, Alfredo Germont, a young bourgeois from a provincial family who has long adored Violetta from afar.

Performers: Violetta Valéry: Herdís Anna Jónasdóttir. Alfredo Germont: Elmar Gilbertsson. Giorgio Germont: Hrólfur Sæmundsson. Flora Bervoix: Sigríður Ósk Kristjánsdóttir.
