Live Recording From The Teatro Alla Scala Di Milano, 2007
Angela Gheorghiu, Ramón Vargas & Roberto Frontali
Orchestra, Chorus and Ballet of the Teatro alla Scala, Lorin Maazel (conductor) & Liliana Cavani (director)
Praised by Bloomberg for having “mastered the role” and “acting her socks off,” Angela Gheorghiu leads an all-star cast which includes Ramón Vargas and Roberto Frontali, with the brilliant conductor Lorin Maazel on the podium. Angela Gheorghiu is the definitive Violetta of her generation, the standard-setter against whom all other exponents of this role must be judged for the foreseeable future. Her affinity for Verdi‘s fragile, gentle-hearted courtesan is rooted in a fine balance of acting and singing skills. Giuseppe Verdi´s immortal opera in a sumptuous production by Liliana Cavani, with world famous singers – a treat for viewers everywhere!
“Talented, glamorous and every bit the diva, Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu is a star.“ Billboard
