Description
This intimate staging by Franco Zeffirelli takes place in the Giuseppe Verdi Theater in Busseto, Italy, the village outside Parma close to where Verdi was born.

"Costumes (by Alberto Spiazzi) are spectacular…. The maestro mines the drama brilliantly, taking care of detail and motivation with the entire cast and chorus. Stefania Bonfadelli is an excellent, instinctive, honest singing actress…. American lyric tenor Scott Piper uses his sunny voice gracefully as Alfredo … and offers a sensitive, appealing character."—Opera News

"Zeffirelli drew finely detailed portrayals from the principals, and, compared to the extravagant productions of 'La Boheme' and 'La Traviata' that he bestowed on the Metropolitan Opera, it was a model of restraint. The Busetto production also boasted a lovely, pure-voiced new Violetta in the person of Stefania Bonfadelli and the masterful veteran baritone Renato Bruson as Germont."—Moscow Times

"A fascinating performance at Busetto's bandbox of an opera theater in 2002…. Zeffirelli handles the party scenes brilliantly…. Domingo, not an intense conductor, sets great tempos and accommodates his singers without distorting the score. Excellent video and sound…. Over an hour of interesting bonus features are included."—Turok's Choice
