“La Traviata” tells a tragic love story between a Parisian courtesan named Violetta and her suitor, Alfredo.
But there are memorable upbeat moments, such as the “Libiamo, Libiamo” drinking song performed here as a duet by soprano Ellie Dehn as Violetta and tenor Ryan MacPherson as Alfredo. It's a festive moment from early in the story during the main characters' first encounter with one another. Watch the singers in the CPR Performance Studio in the video above.
