Why See Kansas City Ballet - Lady of the Camellias?
The Beauty of anguish and impassioned love
Kansas City Ballet lay on an exquisitely romantic treat for Valentine's day as they revive Val Caniparioli's gorgeously devastating adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' tragic love story. Second only to Romeo and Juliet, the timeless story of country boy Armand and his love for the sophisticated courtesan Marguerite has enjoyed many translations, notably into opera by Verdi (La Traviata) and film by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) Now experience the ravishing beauty and bittersweet denouement live on stage, set to the unforgettable music of Frederic Chopin.
The story of Lady of the Camellias
A love story at its core, Lady of the Camellias chronicles the relationship of 1800s Paris' most sought-after Courtesan and the story's selfless heroine Marguerite Gautier and Armand Duval, a middle-class gentleman who defies conventions by falling deeply and irrevocably in love with her. The young lovers face jealousy the wrath of French society and, unbeknownst to Armand, the evolution of Marguerite's fatal illness.
Opening night: 16 February 2019
