I love this performance with Carteri, a much underrated singer (along with other great singers who had the misfortune of being active in the fifties, an era dominated by Callas and Tebaldi).
NB: None of the reviews below is relevant to this performance. Amazon staff, wake up, and sort out the mess on your page (and that includes wrong product information).
Thanks

Verdi's consumptive heroine, Violetta, was, after Norma, the favourite role of Maria Callas. Here her portrayal is so vivid and so heart breaking, it's easy to see why to many she is still the greatest artist of the 20th century. Callas only recorded this role once in the studio, after her less than satisfactory recording with Cetra in 1953 she was unable to record the work for another five years. When in 1955 Giuseppe di Stefano and Tito Gobbi wanted to record the work and preserve their interpretations with Tulio Serafin conducting, Maria had to be replaced as Violetta and was furious with Serafin for recording the work without her. Although by 1959 Callas would have been free to record the work again, for some reason she never did, maybe nobody had anticipated how quickly her voice would break down.

After her death in 1977, numerous live recordings of Callas in this role began to surface. Two from her early career, where her interpretation was yet to deepen, one from 1955, which is certainly spectacular, but still missing something, another brilliant performance from 1956 unfortunately in very poor sound and two from 1958. The two from 1958, this one from Lisbon and the other from London, are by far the best, here Callas really becomes Violetta, happy and care free in the first act, deeply in love in act two and despairing in the last.

The Lisbon is certainly preferable to the Covent Garden Traviata, Callas is in surer voice and can express herself more freely, Kraus is far superior to Valetti and Sereni fits the role of Alfredo's aristocratic father much better than the young-sounding Zanasi. The sound is also very good. The difference between this 1987 EMI copy, and newer remasters such as MYTO's, is that this uses private tapes provided by Kraus.

The great and historical performance of Callas, Krauss... in Lisbon. Absolutely Fantastic. The most emotional Violeta I have ear.

I bought the cd not because Maria Callas but Alfredo Kraus. He was one of my favourite tenors,he still is,and at the time of the recording he was at his best.
The sound sometimes is not great,but considering that it was a ''live'' recording ,and the date, I think that it is alright. For me it is just fine,and for any fan of Alfredo Kraus I recommend it.

It is mono and additionally the sound is not good. I understand that it was recorded in 1955 but I have several operas recorded in the same time and their quality are incomparably better.
