La traviata

Love duets

There is no more moving moment in opera than the long-awaited love duet. From the legendary lovers Tristan and Isolde to Manon Lescaut and Des Grieux, love stories have never ceased to inspire composers over the centuries.

Sincere declarations, love at first sight or heart-rending farewells: these moving moments are all the more poignant because it is highly likely that tragedy will follow... Discover below a selection of the most beautiful love arias, including Verdi’s most famous arias and the rare, but no less touching duets by Dvořák.
