Becoming Traviata gives audiences a look into the creative minds of director Jean-François Sivadier and soprano Natalie Dessay as they reinvent Verdi’s tragic opera for the the Aix-en-Provence Festival in France in 2011. Following the director and star through rehearsals, the film highlights the pair’s effort to fuse acting with music and find the essence of courtesan Violetta’s inevitable heartbreak. “Becoming Traviata is an exquisitely observed look at performance and the creative process.” (LA Times) In English, French and Italian.
