Brindisi la traviata skype
'Brindisi' from Verdi's La Traviata, performed by Emma Matthews and Gianluca Terranova with the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra and the Opera Australia Chorus in Opera Australia's production of La Traviata on Sydney Harbour. Conducted by Brian Castles-Onion. "Libiamo ne' lieti calici" (Italian pronunciation: [liˈbjaːmo nɛ ˈljɛːti ˈkaːlitʃi]; "Let's drink from the joyful cups") is a famous duet with chorus from Verdi's La traviata, one of the best-known opera melodies and a popular performance choice (as is this opera itself) for many great tenors. La traviata is the only one of Verdi's many operas to be set entirely indoors. Unlike Il trovatore, which was composed simultaneously, La traviata is an intimate piece, full of tender lyricism. The character of Violetta dominates the work and her music changes as she develops through the drama, from the hectic, almost hysterical coloratura of Based on: La Dame aux camélias, by Alexandre Dumas fils.
