Giuseppe Verdi based his famous opera on the novel 'The Lady of the Camellias' by Alexandre Dumas. Robert Wilson's production of Violetta Valéry's tragic fate will be his first work at the State Theater of Linz, Austria, one of the most modern operatic stages in Europe by architect Terry Pawson. After the run in Linz, the production was transferred to the Opera House in Perm, Russia, where the production was conducted by Teodor Currentzis. In 2017, the work received a "Golden Mask," the most prestigious Russian theater award, in three categories (Teodor Currentzis - Best Conductor; Nadeshda Pavlova - Best Female Singer; Robert Wilson - Best Lighting Design).
