(With 11 characters)
Opera La Traviata in the direction of Yuri Alexandrov is the story of a simple girl whose only chance for survival in this world is to sell her body. In this production, the relentless feeling of anguish and loneliness is transformed into a dream. The dream lets you live on, preventing you from hitting rock bottom. Violetta dreams of a man who will come and rescue her from her wretchedness. The direction setting of Yuri Alexandrov tries to recreate the beauty of an illusion, of an imaginary world. Violetta’s life is like a burning candle. She dreams of a peaceful death, surrounded by her friends, those who admire her for renouncing the man she loves. But fate does not permit her even this.
