Verdi La Traviata
Verdi La Traviata
La Traviata – the ultimate opera of love and loss – is a great favourite of opera-goers. To coincide with Opera Australia’s Traviata production in the spectacular setting of “Opera on the Harbour”, Eloquence releases Joan Sutherland’s first recording of La Traviata, complete on 2 CDs. It is for many her greatest recorded portrayal of the doomed heroine Violetta. Her Alfredo is the ‘simply supreme’ (Gramophone) Carlo Bergonzi and Sir John Pritchard conducts a ‘most persuasive, well-balanced and well-timed account’ (Gramophone) of this magnificent opera.

CD - 2 discs
Verdi’s opera, La Traviata really needs know introduction, nor does the star on this recording, Dame Joan Sutherland. Her much lamented passing in 2010 has encouraged the re-release of some of her most glorious recordings. This production was recording in 1962 in Italy with Carlo Bergonzi opposite. It has terrific drama and an almost palpable feeling of Verdi’s presence in amongst all the Italians.
