VERDI'S LA TRAVIATA MET 1981 production with Levine/Domingo/Cortrubas
We are finally starting our home opera viewing again...thanks for your patience! James Levine leads a remarkable cast in one of Verdi’s most enduringly popular operas and brings fresh insights to this beloved score. Ileana Cotrubas is poignant and touching as Violetta, the consumptive courtesan who finds true love with Alfredo, sung with style and passion by the great Plácido Domingo. Cornell MacNeil is Germont, Alfredo’s father, who forces the two apart, setting in motion events that lead to a shattering and tragic conclusion. Donation appreciated to cover cost of food/wine. YouTube taste---LA Opera production with Fleming/Villazon: BEST 5 minutes of emotional singing starting at 15:38 to 19:25!!! (but no subtitles)
