Description
Jesús López-Cobos directs the Madrid Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in an acclaimed reading of one of Verdi's greatest works, while Norah Amsellem as Violetta leads an outstandingly talented cast in Pier Luigi Pizzi's beautiful production, filmed in high definition with multi-track surround sound.

"From Violetta's first fevered entry to her agonising death [Amsellem] is totally absorbed in the role, acting and singing with the most eloquent feeling…. In Act 3, this Violetta conveys her sorrow and terrified thoughts with inward passion. 'Addio del passato' is notable for the length of line and exquisite phrasing…. She and Bros sing a near-ideal 'Parigi, o cara' before Violetta dies, a desperately tragic figure. Amsellem's slim figure and expressive face are notable assets in achieving her intelligent reading. López-Cobos conducts an interpretation notable for yielding support of his singers combined with dramatic dash, and the Madrid orchestra play as though their lives depended on the results."—Gramophone

"Amsellem's Violetta flourishes—vocally and dramatically, nothing is a challenge to her…. Thanks to Pizzi's intelligence, every detail in the action works in this production.… Cobos' maturity is astonishing.... His perfect conducting looks for emotion and finds it."—Le Monde de la musique

"A triumphant success…. Amsellem is an absolutely exceptional Violetta, a complete and fascinating artist."—L'Opera
