The reinvention of Verdi’s masterpiece, La Traviata, as sung by world-famous French coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay, is the subject of Philippe Béziat’s thrilling new movie, in which a modern, minimalist, post-punk approach strips away the rigid, over-the-top grandiosity so often associated with opera. Concentrating on director Jean-François Sivadier’s working relationship with Dessay, the film reveals how two great creative minds build the story of a doomed love affair. The stars rehearse in what look like yoga outfits, on a bare stage, with minimal props. The final production, set against a backdrop of sky and clouds punctuated by a single chandelier, features Violetta and Alfredo (a darkly entrancing Charles Castronovo) as the startling essence of hipster-chic. Their passion, however, is for the ages. Featuring music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Louis Langrée, filmmaker Philippe Béziat used his unprecedented access for over two months, in rehearsal rooms and behind the scenes of the Thea! de I'Archeveche, to follow this now-legendary production's development, from concept to glorious realization. In French, Italian and English with English subtitles. (112 min.)
