La Traviata

Acclaimed film and stage director Franco Zeffirelli spared no costs to
reproduce the opulent settings of Violetta Valéry's happiness and
downfall. The unparalleled musical quality of the production is guaranteed
by some of the world's foremost musicians: New York's Metropolitan Opera
Orchestra, conductor James Levine and singers Teresa Stratas and Plácido
Domingo. As Violetta, Teresa Stratas strikes the right balance between
emotional grandeur and physical weakness. And with his meltingly lyrical
voice and magnetic stage presence, Plácido Domingo embodies Alfredo
Germont with a rarely seen passion.
