La Traviata takes place in Paris during the late 1950’s. It is the story of Violetta Valery (Sarah Cooper), a young courtesan famous in Parisian high society. At a party in her home Gaston introduces her to a new admirer, Alfredo Germont (Tshombe Selby). At first glance he was enamored with Violetta and then proposes a toast in her honor before the crowd. At first she treats Alfredo with indifference, but she realizes this may be her chance at true love. He feverishly woos her whispering words of love while at the same time her life style of living in luxury and endless parties could be cruicial to her health. She does not accept the trust that she is ill.
