A collaboration between Ms. Coppola (The Beguiled, Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette), Italian haute couture designer Valentino and Hollywood production designer Nathan Crowley (a 2018 Oscar & BAFTA nominee for Dunkirk), this unique production of La Traviata was a sensation for Opera di Roma, breaking centuries-long house records.
The premiere in Rome attracted an international A list, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Keira Knightley, Monica Bellucci, Elizabeth Hurley and Olivia Palermo, along with fashion notables including Frida Giannini and Diane von Furstenberg.
