Scala Theater_La Traviata

Hotel Milano Castello is located in a strategic position to reach the Teatro alla Scala, just a 5-minute walk away. On 11, 13, 16, 20, 22 and 27 January 2019 La Traviata will be staged.

La Traviata is a opera in three acts by Verdi. It is based on a play by Alexandre Dumas (son), which the same author drew from his previous novel of the same name.

The first performance took place at the Teatro La Fenice on March 6, 1853 but, due to lacking interpreters and - probably - for the subject then considered scabrous, it turned out to be a resounding fiasco; was resumed on May 6 of the following year in Venice at the Teatro San Benedetto in the second version with more valid performers, such as Maria Spezia Aldighieri and directed by the composer, finally received the deserved success.

Because of the criticism of the bourgeois society, the work in the theaters of Florence, Bologna, Parma, Naples and Rome was altered by censorship and staged with some totally distorted pieces. Always to escape censorship, the work had to be moved as a chronological setting from the 19th to the 18th century.
