Today′s selection is from Verdi′s timeless Opera “La Traviata”. According to Karl: “Based on “The Lady of the Camelias” by Alexandre Dumas, fils, La Traviata is the classical tale of love and redemption. It is a reflection on the ephemeral nature of human existence, and it exhibits the profound capacity that each one of us has to transform oneself through the power of love and self-sacrifice. The final scene, in which Alfredo pours out his heart to Violetta, is a visceral display of the theme that love is the final link that overcomes separation and death. The featured song,′Brindisi′, is itself a celebration of life – however fleeting its manifestation.”
