Pocket Opera: 'La Traviata', by Giuseppe Verdi
Venue: Palau Maricel.
Price: 20 euros.
Description: La Traviata suffered rejection and ridicule from the public in Venice on March 6, 1853, when the opera was released. Among other reasons, the rather naugthy plot -that urges to seek complicity with Violetta Valéry, a high heeled prostitute - and the discomfort for many illustrious spectators that could watch their own faces in the mirror. Today, the opera is represented all around the world. Also in Sitges. Many years have passed ... and now the mirror is tarnished.
