La Traviata - G. Verdi
The last piece of the so-called trilogia popolare is a work of complete inner life and is rightly regarded as one of the masterpieces unsurpassed in the Romantic genre. Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) used the famous novel “La dame aux camélias” by the French writer Alexandre Dumas as his literary model; only the names of the protagonists were changed. Although the opera was a great success from a musical point of view, at the same time the moral, overly permissive and liberal attitude of the work was criticized. With the “traviata” (= the Fallen woman) Verdi drew a highly sensitive main character on whom his whole attention is focused - like a psychological study of human nature with all its vices, hardships and desires, but also the ability to renounce for the sake of loved ones. From the first note there is a suggestion of a soul drama that begins with an intimate prelude instead of the usual overture in the classical style. As an autobiographical element, the theme certainly includes the fact that Verdi’s partner Giuseppina Strepponi suffered from a serious illness and that Verdi, who had lost his first wife at an early age, also feared for her life. In addition, the composer’s relationship with Strepponi caused him slander, so that he used this theme artistically in the figure of his father, Germont, who was a well-behaved man. The premiere in 1853 at the Teatro La Fenice turned out to be a farce due to several factors. On the one hand, certainly because Verdi held up an unwanted mirror to Italian society with this subject, on the other hand because of the vocal deficits of the interpreters. One year later, however, also in Venice and only slightly modified, the worldwide, unbroken triumph of “La traviata” began. Today the tragic love story around the courtesan Violetta is the most popular opera of Verdi and one of the most frequently performed works ever.

Sonya Yoncheva
Sonya Yoncheva has been at home on the international opera stages for over ten years. Born in Bulgaria in 1981, the soprano first studied voice and piano in her hometown of Plovdiv before switching to the Geneva Conservatory for her master’s degree. In 2010, Yoncheva won the "Operalia" competition, further awards such as the ECHO Klassik in the category Newcomer of the Year (2015) as well as the Reader’s Prize of "The International Opera Awards" (2019), followed. Her engagements have taken the soprano to all the renowned houses of our time: the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Royal Opera House in London, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, the Berlin and Vienna State Operas, and the Opéra de Paris, to name but a few. Her multifaceted repertoire spans works from almost all eras - this demands a great deal of flexibility from the voice, but that is precisely the singer’s main secret, as she revealed in an interview with Oper! magazine. Among others, the soprano shone in the title roles in "Tosca", "Alcina", "L`incoronazione di Poppea", as well as Mimi ("La bohème"), Marguerite ("Faust") or Violetta ("La traviata"). In addition to her stage activities, Sonya Yoncheva has released three successful solo albums exclusively on Sony Classical: "Paris, mon amour" (2015), "Händel" (2017) and "The Verdi Album" (2018).

Vittorio Grigolo
The tenor Vittorio Grigolo was born on February 19, 1977 in Arezzo, Tuscany, and grew up in Rome in a family of music lovers. He discovered a passion for music at the age of 4, then joined the Sistine Chapel Choir at the age of 9, where he remained there for four years as a soloist. Vittorio Grigolo made his opera debut at 13 as Little Shepherd in Tosca at the Rome Opera House, opposite Pavarotti. From then on, he was nicknamed Il Pavarottino (the Little Pavarotti) by the Italian press. Vittorio Grigolo joined the Vienna Opera at the age of 18 before becoming the youngest singer debuting on the stage at La Scala in Milan at 23 for two concerts conducted by Riccardo Muti. Attached to his roots, Vittorio Grigolo distinguished himself in various Verdian roles and having studied at a French college, the tenor developed a great interest in French romantic opera.
