La Traviata

Few singing actresses can resist the appeal of playing Violetta, the beautiful courtesan who gives up everything for her one chance at true love. Renata Tebaldi’s idiomatic portrayal is heartbreaking; from the glittering gaiety of Act I, through gripping confrontation with Alfredo’s father (Leonard Warren) and the misunderstanding with Alfredo himself (Giuseppe Campora) in Act II, to the final, tragic reunion at the end, this is one Lady of the Camellias you’ll never be able to forget.
