La Traviata, 26 Aug 2010
This performance of Violetta (the heroine of La Traviata) justifiably established Angela Gheorghiu as a great operatic talent.
Ms Gheorghiu has the added physical advantage of looking the part of a doomed courtesan. Most importantly, her voice has many colours which she used with great intelligence in this performance.
The scene where death is close is particularly affecting.
This DVD is a must for anyone who loves opers
