Natalie Dessay made her first European appearances as Violetta in La traviata in a new
production by the French director Jean-François Sivadier at the 2011 Aix-en-Provence
Festival. This DVD captures her intense performance in the company of American tenor
Charles Castronovo as Alfredo and French baritone Ludovic Tézier as his father, Giorgio
Germont. “Her theatrical impact is devastating,” wrote the Financial Times.
With this new production of La traviata at the 2011 Aix-en-Provence Festival, Natalie
Dessay made her first European appearances as Verdi’s Violetta, a pinnacle of the
soprano repertoire. She made her debut in the role in 2009 at the Santa Fe Festival in the
US, and subsequently sang Violetta in Japan. Dessay’s 2011-12 season will include La
traviata at the Vienna State Opera (in this Aix-en-Provence production by French theatre
and opera director Jean-François Sivadier) and the New York Metropolitan.
Violetta makes tremendous demands on a singer, both vocally and dramatically, and
signals Dessay’s transition from lighter coloratura roles to the more full-blooded lyric
repertoire. “I’m tired of playing weeping girls,” she told the French magazine Télé 7 Jours,
“Violetta is a real woman. That makes a nice change!” The change was clearly
successfully achieved: describing Dessay’s performance, the Financial Times wrote that

“her theatrical impact is devastating”.
Sivadier’s production was staged in the open air, in Aix-en-Provence’s exquisite Théâtre
de l'Archevêché with its huge spiral staircases, medieval arches and 18th-century wings.
The stage décor was minimal, the simple costumes evoked the 1940s or 1950s, and the
prime focus was on intense characterisation
