One must recognize Sir Georg Solti's contribution as well.
Overall, the production is magnificent. The sound recorded in 5.1 channels is a pleasure to listen to and the picture quality is also perfect. But the real gem in this production is Angela Gheorghiu.
I highly recommend this DVD!
Lopardo does a good job as the young Germont. Not in the same league as his mistress, of course... but quite reliable most of the time.
Nucci is good, well, actually more than good.
The production is devoid of disturbing anachronisms such as punk rockers, AIDS-replacing-TBC-as-cause-of-death inventions and that sort of garbage. We are grateful for that.
Solti is in very good form, not at all hard-driven but sensitive and precise at the same time.
In all, as much as I admire the legacy of the great Maria Callas: Buy this DVD and meet a new generation of very capable and very convincing performers on the operatic stage. And above all: Meet Angela Georgiou in a role that suits her perfectly!
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
