The release La Traviata brings to at-home audiences the Salzburg Festival's 2005 production of Giuseppe Verdi's titular masterpiece. This interpretation stars Anna Netrebko as Violetta Valery, Helene Schneidermann as Flora Bervoix, Diane Pilcher as Annina and Rolando Villazon as Alfredo Germont. It features musical accompaniment by the Konzertverzinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor as conducted by Rubert Huber
The legendary soprano Rosa Ponselle was right when she said of the huge range demanded of the title role, from the brilliance of Act I to the pure lyricism of the final “Addio del passato” that anyone singing Violetta should have four voices – a different one for each scene ...

Liliana Cavani and Dante Ferretti’s Traviata production was revived in the summer of 2007. The title role was sung for the first time at La Scala by the Romanian star soprano Angela Gheorghiu, who sings and plays the title role of Violetta overwhelmingly, with the Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas as Alfredo. Giorgio Germont was sung by Italian Roberto Frontali. The conductor Lorin Maazel reaped massive protests from the audience by removing this last figure’s baritone cabaletta “Non udrai rimproveri” (“I will hear no reproaches”) from the finale of Act II, he had to give in to the pressure from the audience for musical completeness and reinstate it. Who says no-one feels passionate about culture any more? Opera and passion are still part of the Italian culture and lifestyle!
