"La Traviata" | Opera Movie Screening | SF Main Library

The series begins Sunday, September 15, 2013 with “La Traviata,” the 1982 Oscar-nominated version starring Placido Domingo and Teresa Stratas, directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Presented in Italian with English subtitles.

Director Franco Zeffirelli triumphantly captures La Traviata for the screen in this visually stunning, musically thrilling and intensely dramatic marriage of cinema and grand opera. La Traviata opulently portrays the tragic affair of the consumptive courtesan Violetta and her lover Alfredo.
