About this Recording

DUMAS, A.: Lady of the Camellias (The) (Abridged)

The tragic but doomed love of Marguerite and Armand, recounted so passionately in La Dame aux Camélias, became one of the great love stories from its first publication in 1848. The title role of the consumptive heroine and her ultimate sacrifice inspired actresses from Sarah Bernhardt to Greta Garbo;—and Giuseppe Verdi to write La Traviata. In this sound dramatisation, the story of passion and conflict is as fresh and compelling as when it was first written.
