The Lady of the Camellias | [Alexandre Dumas]

The Lady of the Camellias

The tragic but doomed love of Marguerite and Armand became one of the great love stories from its first publication in 1848. In this sound dramatization of the consumptive heroine's ultimate sacrifice, the story of passion and conflict is fresh and compelling as when it was first written.

Audible Editor Reviews

Setting the mood with music, the production unfolds with vignettes - mini-scenes with sound effects, including background and crowd noises, a horse and buggy on cobblestones, just enough to suggest, not too much to be intrusive. The cast is uniformly excellent as the story of the beautiful, dying courtesan and her passionate lover spirals to its inevitable conclusion. Cast members create a large group of convincing characters, and the narrators' descriptions of clothes and rooms and people are wonderfully elegant. Combined with the fine performances and the heartbreaking love story, this is a perfect vehicle for audio. Listeners will savor this film for the ears.

Publisher's Summary

The tragic but doomed love of Marguerite and Armand, recounted so passionately in La Dame Aux Camellias, became one of the great love stories from its first publication in 1848. The title role of the consumptive heroine and her ultimate sacrifice inspired actresses from Sarah Bernhardt to Greta Garbo - and Giuseppe Verdi to write La Traviata. In this sound dramatization, the story of passion and conflict is fresh and compelling as when it was first written.

    "The Lady of the Camellias"

    I read the book a while back and found it very good. Unfortunately the audio version is far from good. When multiple characters are narrating the sound is very low and you can't really tell what are they saying. Need improvement in the sound for sure. The music on the other side is very loud. I was adjusting my volume all the time....

    "English Major"

    I frequently listen to many audible books to complete my reading assignments for college. However, this is one of the best classic dramatizations I have heard so far. The sound quality, background nuances, and orchestration throughout were excellent! I would have loved this rendition even had I not been required to read it for class! I recommend it for everyone, and be ready for your heart to break!
