Live Recording From The Teatro Alla Scala Di Milano 2007 with:
Violetta Valéry ANGELA GHEORGHIU Alfredo Germont RAMÓN VARGAS Giorgio Germont ROBERTO FRONTALI Orchestra, Chorus and Ballet of the Teatro alla Scala Conducted by LORIN MAAZEL Directed by LILIANA CAVANI Set Design by DANTE FERRETTI Costumes GABRIELLA PESCUCCI Choreography MICHA VAN HOECKE
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 affi nity for Verdi‘s fragile, gentle-hearted courtesan is rooted in a fi ne 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
