This documentary takes us behind the scenes of La Traviata directed by Willy Decker and conducted by Carlo Rizzi in Salzburg Festival in 2005, with the lyrical stars Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazón, and Thomas Hampson. La Traviata is about teo people, Violetta, suffering an illness, and Alfredo, a young man of good family. The love they bear in the first meeting stirs the wrath of Alfredo's father, Giorgio Germont, Violetta who is forced to break with his son. The romantic tale ends with a tragidy, caused by the father's conflict with his son. The story of La Traviata gathers two people, Violetta -- a famed courtesan suffering from phtisis -- and Alfredo, a young nobleman. They fall in love at first sight, but Giorgio Germont, Alfredo's father, stands against the young people's feelings. He forces Violetta to break up with his son. Alfredo ends up learning the cause of his rupture with Violetta, but when he understands that his father is responsible for his sorrow, it is too late; he goes find Violetta who dies in his arms.
