Hot on the heels of the June 2000 La traviata à Paris, which was broadcast live to an international television audience of millions, comes the CD of the production. The two-disc release is not a studio recording but the actual soundtrack of the television film, which was made over two days in the sort of venues Verdi had in mind when composing the opera. Hence the opening party takes place in Paris's Italian embassy--and you can hear the clanking of crockery and cutlery in the background. Of course this might not be to everyone's taste (we also get to hear birds, feet, doors and a host of other things) but for me it singles this recording out as unique--we are drawn in to the action but without the extraneous audience noise which scars many live recordings. José Cura is dynamic in his first Alfredo on disc, but the real star of the show is the hitherto little-known Siberian soprano Eteri Gvazava who really makes the role of Violetta her own in a highly-charged emotional performance. Zubin Mehta directs a spirited Orchestra Singonica Nazionale della RAI. --Rebecca Agnew

Eteri Gvazava has a stunning voice- tragic and warm at times. Rolando Panerai is also very fine. My only quibble is with Jose Cura. I cannot understand all the hype about him. Yes, he has a fine voice, but it appears to me to be little more than a feeble immitation of his tutor Domingo- he doesn't have the warmth, flexibility or the effortless range. He sounds more like a baritone singing a tenor role. However, that is my own taste.
Another reason I avoided giving five stars is the fact that there are so many good recordings, many that are better; Domingo and Cotrubas are very good; del Monte and de los Angeles make a very spirited performance. However, one of the best has to be Sutherland and Bergonzi. What more can be said about these two giants of opera other than that there great? For me Bergonzi is Alfredo and Sutherland is Violetta!
