La Traviata, one of the most popular operas of all times was created after the drama Lady of the Camellias of the French writer Alexander Dumas the son, and the world opening night of Verdi's La Traviata occurred only 13 months later, in 1853. Verdi created his La Traviata with great enthusiasm and it was very surprising that at that time already world famous, he experiences a fiasco at the Venetian theatre La Fenice. Verdi withdrew the work and after a year performed it again but in another Venetian theatre with more detailed preparations. The Venetian audience made amends for the world premiere and this time the success was huge and La Traviata went into the world as one of the most popular and most performed operas. The conductor at the premiere in March 2022 was Srba Dinić while Hugo de Ana, the famous Argentinian theatre artist was the director, set and costume designer of the production.
