She was a French country girl: Alphonsine. Plessis.
She moved to Paris. changed her her name to
Marie Duplessis and became a fashionable courtesan. In 1848,
Alexandre Dumas wrote her story, called her Marguerite, and immortalised her, first in a novel, later in a play as The Lady of the Camellias. Verdi called her Violetta and made her into the heroine of an opera. La traviata; and when Greta Garbo acted her part in a film, she was called Camille.
Jonathan Miller, who recently produced Verdi's opera for the Kent Opera Company, explores the transformations of this fascinating character.
With the voices of EVE KARPF and ANTHONY HYDE , and extracts from a recording of La traviata by the BERLIN STATE OPERA

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
