La traviata – ‘Follie ! Follie ! / Sempre libera’

Extracts | Verdi

The guests have now all left the party, leaving Violetta alone with her thoughts in her large Parisian salon. The courtesan is shaken by Alfredo's declaration of love. Is true love a possibility? Is she ready to leave her 'life of empty distractions'? 'Sempre libera' ('Always free') concludes the first act of La traviata.

Marina Rebeka is Violetta in this semi-staged concert version of Verdi's masterpiece. Recorded in July 2020 at Teatro Real, this production is one of the first to be put on worldwide after the lockdown.

The full performance is no longer available but other material about the production can be found here.
