Three operas on Blu-ray for under £20! Hui He gives a fantastic performance as Aida and this recording alone makes this set a terrific buy. In my opinion, Angela Gheorghiu is not the best Violetta in La Traviata but the overall production of this, my favourite Opera. However, a worthy production overall. The third piece of this set is Simon Boccanegra with Placido Domingo making a change from his usual tenor to the lead part of a baritone. This recording, of the three in the set, was the most disappointing. Overall, this is a delightful purchase and I am going looking for similar offers.
