‘La Traviata’ by Anne Benjamin
Thu, Apr 15, 21 / James BDP
This week we will be selling a small consignment of posters from Evil Tender's excellent Opera Print Series with signed copies of Anne Benjamin's ‘La Traviata’. Over to Evil Tender's Chris:
"At the core of Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La traviata stands Violetta, the courtesan — her life at the nexus of giving love for money and true love. In the background, she awaits her oncoming death. She is the tragic heroine of her own story.
For her take on La traviata, Anne Benjamin shows us Violetta in full bloom — the yellow of the sun at her face, the green dress rich enough to grow the camellia in her hand. Rather than showcase the tragic end, Benjamin highlights her lavish and joy-filled life."
