"La traviata is an opera in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, set to an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It is based on La dame aux Camélias (1852), a play adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas fils. The title "La traviata" means literally The Fallen Woman, or perhaps more figuratively, The Woman Who Goes Astray. It was originally titled Violetta, after the main character." -The Other Wiki
