Minimalistic set, and with two of the best voices around, what an absolute treat. Anna Netrebko and Roland Villazon work so well together, I have them together in La Boheme, so I was expecting something good, and got it. The direction and supporting voices are brilliant, I could, and have, watched this production over and over again, get it and enjoy.

I loved it! The singing was superb and so emotional and the acting of Netrebo and Villazon spot on and heart rending.
Do not be put off by the modern setting. I was apprehensive when I bought the DVD but was won over. It stripped the setting of non essentials and cut through to the truth of the opera. The use of the figure of "Death" and the clock counting down inspired; always there reminding us and Violetta that her time is limited. The end of Act 2 when the party goers retreat before "Death" was spine-tingling.
Buy it!

Amazing production of a classic. with fantastic acting performances from anna and Rolando.If a modern dress production has dramatic power such as this you don't mind losing the visuals. the design is stiking and the performances drive us on to be bewitched by it

If you only ever have one version of this, perhaps the most famous of operas, I urge you to buy this one; it is just fantastic both aurally and visually. Normally modern productions do not appeal but this bleak but strangely surrealistic setting lends a whole new dimension to the story which becomes believable. The acting of the two main leads is superb and even after repeated viewings it brings tears to my eyes

Two of my favourite operatic performers in a great production. He animated and emotional she sensual and mellifluous. Great stuff.

Outstanding opera production with great singing. I am addicted to it.

I have nothing more to say so your word requirement merely irritates me about Amazon.
