Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"La Traviata" owes its enduring popularity to a superb story of young love and fatal sacrifice, set to music by Italy's master melodist at the peak of his powers. Interest and poignancy are added by the fact that this is a true story. The central figure, the heroine Violetta, dominates the piece.
