"A spare and ravishing doc." (Village Voice)

"The music is so transcendent that, when it flows through you you become part of its madness, you become larger than life." (Jean-Francois Sivadier)

Join the production director, principal singers, chorus and orchestra as they interweave the many layers that give physical substance to Verdi's magnificent music. This is particularly tangible when Jean-Francois Sivadier (the director) and Natalie Dessay (Violetta Traviata) interact. We can feel the creativity, sensitivity, skill, intelligence and richness of what flows between them as if it were as physical as our bodies. It is as alive as the vital force that animates us.

Please do remember to view this film on your own ahead of time, we will discuss it together.

Please RSVP for link to the event to Irene Rosenthal ( by Saturday, April 30th
