La Traviata.
The story u]ion wliich " La Traviata " is based is fhat of the hook arni play
" La Dame aux Caiiilias ''
of the younger Dumas, the story which is familiar to
the English stage under the name of " Camille." The three acts of the opera pre-
sent the princi|ial incidcnts of the play and hook. A gay party is in progress in
the iiouse of inc/ta ( Ma?- uri- ite (riiu/Ziicr in the originai story), a Parisian cour-
j^''

tesan. Alfredo, a yoiing man of respectable Proyen<;al faniily, wlio loves the
?

wonian, joins in tlie merrv-making bis love is passionate and earnest, and is met
;

by tbe love of l'iolctta. who at bis solicitation agrees to abandon ber dissolute life
and live with him alone. In Act II the pair are found boused in tbe suburbs of
Paris. Alfredo learns that Violetta bas sold ber city property to maintain tbeir
country home, and goes to Paris to recover it he returns to find bis companion
;

gone. In big absence Germont, Alfredo's father, had visited ber and persuaded
ber, by appeals to ber love and sympathy for bis son, to abandon him. She returns
to ber old life in the city. Tbere, at a ball given by one of ber associates, Alfredo
fnds ber again, overwbelms ber witb reproacbes, and ends a scene of excitement
bv denouncing ber publiclv and tbrowing bis ganibling gains at ber feet. In the
last act \'i aletta dies in the anns of her lover, who had learned of her sacrifce for

bis family and hurried to ber side to find ber in the last stages of consumption.
Dumas, in tbe preface to his romance, savs tbat the main incidents of the story
are true, and it is said that Dickens had it in bis mind to write a novel on the sub-
ject before Dumas. Tbe facts, while they may be interesting from a biograpbical
point of view, bave no hearing on the moral and testhetic questions raised by tbe
iipera, wbich bave remained open for over forty years, despite tbe popularity won
by Verdi's music. Dimias's book appeared in 1848, bis play in 1852. Verdi
saw tlie latter in Paris wbile it vvas new, and, thougb he was at work at the time
on " Il Trovatore," he laid cut tbe pian of " La Traviata " and sent X to Piave, tbe
librettist who had "Emani," "I due Foscari," "Macbetb,"
written tbe books of
"Il Corsaro," " " and "Rigoletto" for him. The composer's creative
StifFelio
capacity was at its high-water mark, and his eagerness and energy are illustrated
in tbe fact tbat he \vorked concurrently on tbe two operas. " Il Trovatore " was
produced at Rome on January 19, 18^3, and " La Traviata" less tban seven weeks
later, on March6, i8^,_ at the Fenice Tbeatre, Venice. He -wrote the music
within a moni according to tbe evidence of tbe autograph, wbich is in the possession
li,

of the publisher, Ricordi. Eigbteen operas from Verdi's pen bad preceded " La
Traviata," and the sun of bis fame stood at its zenitb, yet tbe opera failed lament-
ably on its first production. Tbe
reason ? Verdi seems to bave kno^vn it, in part, at
loast. On performance he wrote to bis friend and pupil Salvini-
tbe day after tbe first

Muzio " La Traviata' last night a failure. Was tbe fault mine or tbe singers'
:
'

Tniie will teli;" but wben Varesi., the singer who had been entrusted witb the
part of Germont, wbich !ie thought beneath his dignitv, carne to him and ofFered
bis condolences, Verdi declined to receive them. " SIake them to yourself and
your companions, who bave not understood my music," he said. This does not
seem to liave been an altogether accurate description of the case. Oraziani, the
tenor, was hoarse and could not sing well, and Verdi exacted, perhaps, more than
be ougbt \vhen he wanied Signora Donatelli to overcome the absurdity of tbe
staije-picture by the ilJusive power of her singing. Tbe lady was monstrously
stoiit. and the contradictions in tbe deatb-scene of tbe last act appealed too
slniiigly to tbe \^enetian sense of b-nnor to permit the best of Verdi's dramatic
Mcconts to \y.i\c tbe effect wliicb bad flled bis fancy. The opera ended with shTieks
c-if laugbtcr wben tlie too generouslv upholstered Violetta was heard to declare that

IV
shewas on tlie edge of a consumptive's grave. Moreover, the public found amuse-
ment in the circunistance that the personages of the opera were clad in conventional
modem dress. This led to a revision, in which costiimes and stage-furniture be-
longing to an earlier centiiry (it is not well to try to be explicit in such matters)
were substituted for those of fifty years ago. Thus, revised as to its dress and with
a few changes in the score, the opera was launched again in the same city after the
lapse of about a year, and set out on its successful voyage around the \vorld. It

reached London on May 24, 1856; St. Petersburg, November i, 1S56; New York,
December 3, 1S56, and Paris, December 6, 1S56. Piccolomini, who liad enacted the
rnle of 'ioh-ttn in Turin in 1S55, chose it for her dbut in London, and to hor
personaHty, and possibly also to otiier extraneous causcs, tiie prompt and emphatic
triumph of the opera, in spile of the judgment of the critics, was due.
"La Traviata" belongs to those dramatic works which, on their first appear-
ance, cause more discussion because of tiieir subject-matter than tiieir artistic excel-
lence. Whether the anathema pronounced agamst them bv individuai and officiai
censorship helps or hinders the growth of these works into popularity, I shall not
attempt to say. There can scarcely be a doubt, however, that niany latter-day
theatrical managers would hail with pleasure and expectation of proflt such a con-
troversy as greeted " La Traviata " in London. The Lord Chamberlain had refused
to sanction the English adaptations of " La Dame aux Camlias," and whea the
opera, based on the plaj-, was brought forward, pulpit and press thundered in de-
nunciation of it. Mr. Lunilev, manager of Iler JVLijesty's Theatre, carne to the
defence of the work in a letter to the all-powerful Thnes newspaper, but his purpose
was plainly more to encourage the popular excitement and irritate curiosity than to
shield the opera from condemnation. Indeed, he had every reason to be contented.
" La Traviata " had made a complete fiasco on its production in Italy, where no
one dreamed of objecting to its storv in London there was a loud outcry against
;

the " foul and hideous horrors of the book," and the critics found little to praise in
its music, yet the opera scored a tremendous popular success and helped resene Her

Majesty's froin threatened ruin. " Once more frantic crowds struggled in the
lobbies of the theatre, " ^vrites Mr. Lumley in his " Reminiscences " "once more ;

dresses \vere torn and hats crushed in the conflict once more a mania possessed the
;

public." Was it the music alone? That is scarcelv to be believed, for the opera
was not well sung, and the criticai taste of the English, as voiced bv their writers
for the press, was opposed to 'the strenuous stvle of Signor Verdi. Was it the
libretto? Alas! who cared much for the libretto of an opera then, and who could
bave gone to the opera for the sake of so badly diluted a play, sung, moreover, in a
foreign tongue !The fact that the language was Italian, robbed the opera of what-
ever charm it might bave had for those who would have foitnd pleasure in the odor
of moral decay. Plainlv, the success of " La Traviata" in London was cliiefly due
to Marietta Piccolomini, who effected her English dbut in it. It is an amusing

chapter which this \vinsome little lady contributed to the history of opera during her
brief career. Two years later she became as much of a rage in New York as she
had been in London ;
yet she was in no sense a great singer. A bewitching per-

14400
sonality and ingenious advertising were ber conquering arms. She belonged to the
ancient Italian nobility. It was one which dated
\vas given out tliat the family
back to the lime of Charlemagne, and had given two popes and a cardinal to the
Church, to say nothing of the hero of the second drama in Schiller's "Wallenstein"
trilogy. Ilcre was brave advertising material, and right bravely was it exploited.
The charming little woman, who had a weak mezzo-soprano voice, limited in range
to an octave and a half, little or no execution, and uncertain intonation who, Mr. ;

Chorley would bave us believe, ^vas little better than a comedy soubrette, a vaude-
ville singer, "a Columbuie, born to make eyes over an apron with pockets,"
' '

compelled success for "Traviata " in the city where success was least to bave been
expected. " Her best appearance was in 'La Traviata,'" wrote Mr. Chorley in
summing up tlie season of 1856 at Her Majesty's Theatre, " The music of the first
act pleased, perhaps, because it is almost the solitary act of gay music from the
composer's pen and ber effrontery of behaviour passed for being dramatically true
;

to the character, and not, as it afterward proved, her habitual manner of accosting
the public. In the repulsive death-act, too, she had one or two good moments of
serious emotion, tbough tbis was driven at times to the verge of caricature, as when
every clause of her last song was interrupted by the cougb which belongs to the
character "
There is no reason to question the correctness of tbis judgment by the critic of
Tlie AthencFitm. A different \'iolctta was disclosed when Bosio sang the part in
I>ondon, when Patti made it scintillant with gems of vocalization, and even when
Christine Nilsson chose a new French
adaptation of the opera for her public dbut
in Paris on October 27, 1S64. Verdi's music had won the French capital so com-
pletely in 1S36 that Scudo despaired of Italy's musical future, because of the " pro-
digious success" of " LaTraviata." The circumstances surrounding tlie production
of the opera in New York did not permit many repetitions of it. There had been a
destructive competition between Ivlr. IMax Maretzek's Italian company at the
Academy of Music and a German company at Niblo's Garden. The regular Italian
season had been brought to an end bv a quarrel between Mr. Maretzek and the
directors of the Academj- of Music, but the troupe returned to give a brief season
under the style of the La Grange Opera Company, before proceeding to Havana.
In tbis interregnum "La Traviata" was given, and concerning its reception I
cannot do better than to quote at some length the criticism which appeared on
December 5 in the AVty York Trihiine newspaper :

" The La Traviata we bave alread)' given to our readers. It is simply


plot of ' '

'Camille.' The scene afTords us some waltzing music, appropriate in its place,
first
on which a (musical) dialogue takes place. The waltz is not specially good, nor is
there any masterly out-working of detail. A fair driiiking song was afforded, which
pleased but was not encored. A pretty duet, by Mad. de la Grange and Signor
Brignoli, may be noticed also in this act and tiie final air by Mad. de la Grange,
;

'Ah fors' lui che l'anima,' contained a brilliant, florid dose, which brought down
the house, and the curtain had to be re-raised to admit of a repetition. Act IL
admits of more intensified music than Act I. A
brief air by Alfred (Brignoli) is
followed by an air by Germont (Amodio), and by a duct. Violetta (La Grange) and

IMOO
,

Gcrmont. The duet is well worked up, and is rousing, passionate music. Verdi 's
iTiastery of
dramatic accent of tlie nodern school of declamation is here evident.

Some dramatic work, the orchestra leading, follo'ws bringing an air by Gcrmont
'
Di Provenza il mar.' This is a 3-4 travestie of the waltz known as Weber's Last'

Waltz (which, however, Weber never urote) and is too uniform in the length of
'
;

its notes to have dramatic breadth or eloqiience. A


good hit is the sudden exit of
Alfred thereupon. not stopping to make an andiamo duet, as is so often done. It
is draiTiatic. Tiie next scene introduces us to a masquerade, where are choruses
of quasi-gypsies, inatadors, and picadors
sufficiently characteristic. The scene
after the card playing, which is so fine in tlie play, is ineffcient in music. Act III.
in the hook (tliougli it was inade Act IV. on tiiis occasion by subdividing the sec-
ond) reveals the sick-room of La Traviata. A
sweet air minor and major by
turns, with some hautboy wailing paints the sufferer's sorrows.
lovers, Parige, o cara,' is especially originai in ils peroration.
'
A
duet by the
The closing trio has
due culmination of anguish, though we would have preferred a quiet ending to a
hectic shriek and a doubly loud force in the orchestra.
" Goldsmith's rule in the \'icar for criticising a painting was always to say
that 'the picture would have been better if the painter had taken more pains.'
Perhaps the same might be said of La Traviata
'
but whether it would have

pleased the public more is another question. Some of the airs certainly would bear
substitution by others in the author's happier vein. The opera was well received.
Three times the singers were called before the curtain. The piece was well put
upon the stage. Mad. La Grange never looked so well. Her toilet was charming. "
