4.0 out of 5 stars Teatro Real performance of La Traviata May 24 2010
I think it is a good performance. The setting is brought forward to a World War II time frame, in Paris of course. Normally I am not a huge fan of time shifting, but it works very well here. The sets are extremely well done, perhaps the best I have seen (I have only seen a few Traviatas). The occasional presence of a small number of German officers in Act I is not distracting. Norah Ansellem does a good job as Violetta, with some arias stronger than others. "Alfredo, di questo core" at the end of Act II was very memorable, and strengthens a poignant moment in the opera, for me at least. I think Jose Bros does a fine job as Alfredo. Alfredo's character and principles, and intense love of Violetta come through at all times. His stepping up to the plate to take over when Baron Douphol refuses to give the toast, and his other arias and duets are well delivered. Renato Bruson is a convincing Giorgio Germont, the arias are all done very well. Overall a very good performance and I have watched it several times. Vocally, it is not Pavarotti/Sutherland, Ansellem is not Beverly Sills (these are the only CDs of Traviata that I have), but it is quite a good performance and I am glad I bought it. She is a convincing Violetta throughout, particularly in Act III, where she is portraying someone in the advanced stage of consumption. On a final note, the interviews of the main characters are worthwhile watching, as they are quite informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars This version is under-rated March 14 2013

This version is excellent. It should be one of the top rated ones. Stefania Bonfadelli's physique fits her role. Scott Piper too.

5.0 out of 5 stars La Traviata/Norah Amsellem Opus Arte March 22 2009
By Aurora L. Costa-esnard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Norah Amsellem's voice is amazing but her acting is even better. Her role in the second act bought me to tears. Renato Bruson sang and acted the best Georgio Gremont ever. I don't usually like it when the director chooses a modern setting but this one was very successful. I was surprised to see nudity in an opera but it was done in good taste and was beautiful. I would recommend this to opera lovers as well as non-opera lovers.
