5.0 out of 5 stars A star is born, 28 Nov 2010
This review is from: Verdi: La Traviata -- Royal Opera House [DVD] [NTSC] [2001] (DVD)
This is, of course, the production which propelled Angela Gheorghiu to international stardom and rightly so, as both her singing and acting are absolutely spellbinding. The resolutely traditional production is nevertheless very effective and its success is due in part to the casting of singers who look right for their parts. I am not a particular fan of either Frank Lopardo or Leo Nucci, but they both do well here, especially the latter. Smaller parts are taken by Covent Garden regulars and it is especially good to encounter those most communicative of performers, Gillian Knight and Richard van Allan. Sir George Solti conducts lovingly.
