La Traviata Remixed (Video from Grachtenfestival Amsterdam)

The world knows hundreds of Wagner pastiches and mash-ups, and his original operas are of course still played. But strangely enough very little has been done with Verdi’s music, not even parodies.
So I would recommend: If you want to see your nice 19th century „Traviata“ as your grandfather knew it just go to any opera house in your vicinity, chances are good that they will play it at some point.
