LA TRAVIATA is Now Playing at Theater St.Gallen Photo LA TRAVIATA is Now Playing at Theater St.Gallen

Violetta Valéry ist jung, begehrt und todkrank. In der glamourösen Halbwelt von Paris führt sie als Edelprostituierte ein ausschweifendes, aber isoliertes Leben im Luxus – bis sie mit Alfredo den Mann trifft, für den sie alles aufgeben und mit dem sie einen bürgerlichen Neuanfang wagen will. Doch die Moralvorstellungen von Alfredos Familie sowie das Fortschreiten ihrer Krankheit machen Violettas Pläne zunichte.
