Valentino Garavani had a dream to one day bring to the stage a new Traviata. The Teatro dell’Opera de Roma offered him this unique opportunity and so his dream became reality. Valentino himself designed the stage costumes of the main character and asked Sofia Coppola, after seeing her film ‘Marie Antoinette’, to direct it.
This irresistible combination of haute couture and opera is currently to be enjoyed in Spain at ‘El Palau de les Arts’ in Valencia. Placido Domingo will be performing the part of Giorgio Germont. So dreams can come true after all.
