Pre-Opera Talk with Dr. Morton Achter
"The 'Vulnerable Woman' in 19th-Century Opera"
Violetta could almost be considered a poster girl for the downtrodden heroine in opera and melodrama. A brief survey of the character type, which also includes "fallen" and frail women, with special emphasis on one of Verdi's greatest works.
