In order to celebrate the 200 years of Guiseppe Verdi's birth (1813-1901) and the 160 years of the opera's premiere,''La Traviata'', we have chosen two scale models made by the Portuguese opera singer, Tomás de Alcaide, made for his production of Verdi's work, performed in 1964, in Lisbon and Oporto.
To illustate these pieces we show you a video of the aria ''Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici'' from the film version of 1982, directed by Franco Zeffireli. Placido Domingo is Alfredo Germont and Teresa Stratas Violetta Valéry.
