* TimeSkip: If you left for a bathroom break at the end of Act I you would come back in at Act II thinking you must have fallen asleep in the bathroom and missed something. The end of Act I sees Violetta emphatically claiming she will continue her life of pleasure. But in Act II, she clearly changed her mind, as it's months later and they have been living together for some time. There is also a less dramatic time jump at the end of Act II to get to the last moments of Violetta's illness.

** Which is actually an improvement on the original novel, in which Marguerite (early version of Violetta) died completely alone and forsaken.

* BetaCouple: Flora and the Marquis. They're a courtesan-and-patron couple like Violetta and the Baron (at the start) and Flora and Violetta are good friends. In Act II, the fortunetellers correctly assert that the Marquis has been fooling around with others, but after a brief public scolding, Flora forgives him and they agree to start over. This easy forgiveness and affection is in stark contrast to Alfredo's way of doing things.
