About this show

Anyone can pay the price for Marguerite Gautier's body -- but no one can own her heart. That is, until a handsome young Parisian catches sight of her across a crowded theatre, igniting a mutual obsession -- one that tears both their worlds apart. Beautifully evoking the glittering and decadent spirit of 19th century Paris, Camille is one of the world's great love stories and the inspiration for Verdi's operatic masterpiece La traviata. It has scandalized and fascinated audiences for over a hundred and fifty years. This new adaptation returns to the original novel for its shockingly frank and powerfully emotional portrayal of a woman who can afford anything -- except to fall in love.
