La traviata 

Love is no game.

When the glamorous courtesan Violetta and the young Alfredo fall for each other, it’s as if nothing can tear them apart. But as tragedy unfolds over three sublime acts, family, classism, and deceit plague their relationship, and true love is shaken to its core. Verdi’s La traviata is one of the world’s most beloved—and performed—operas.
