Customer Reviews

The performances, especially that of Anna Netrebko, were splendid.
E. James Archer
Singers are wonderful: quality singing, marvelous acting, highly believable in their roles, great chemistry.
Fair and balanced critic
Despite that, I found his voice to be too light in weight and too lacking in warmth for the older Germont.
L. E. Cantrell

Recorded live at the Salzburg Festival in 2005 this 2-DVD Premium Edition of Verdi's "La Traviata", featuring Carlo Rizzi, directing the Wiener Philharmoniker, is a treasure in every way a great opera and great production (staged by Willy Decker and Directed by Brian Large) can be. Filmed in widescreen and recorded for digital sound, every visual and audio advantage that could be given to the cast was offered, including an interesting use of a single set (picture a cinemascope screen and walls lit in soft white or blue) with an occasional tapestry covered couch or two to contrast color against the black and white unisex suits worn by the chorus, and red dresses and robe of Ms. Netrebko. It's not necessary to dwell on the voices of the stars, suffice so say that the performances were lively and vibrant, filled with easy passion and an obvious affection and chemistry that clearly exists between Villazón and Netrebko. This is a sensuous, minimalist production of "Traviata" that obviously exploits the sex appeal of Ms. Netrebko and exuberant vitality of Mr. Villazón who does justice to those scenes that require he cavort around in little more than a pair of shorts. For this Premium Edition, the full opera is contained on a single disk; the second disc is reserved for some extras, one of which stands on its own for its sheer enjoyment: "The Making of . . . video." This alone is worth the cost of the set because it captured the stars and supporting cast in rehearsal, joking, interacting - and in one particularly funny scene, having Ms. Netrebko lecture Villazon that he uses his hands too much when he sings as she stands behind him pressing his hands behind his back, and using her own arms, under his, to gesture the way she thinks he looks.Read more ›

For the past fifty-four years, everybody's been talking about "The Tosca" of Callas, Di Stefano and Cobbi: the August 1953 studio EMI recording under the baton of Maestro Victor De Sabata. It may finally have come to pass. Now, everybody will be talking about "The La Traviata" of Netrebko, Villazon and Hampson: the 2005 Saltzburg Decker's staging with Rizzi on the podium.
The minimalist and stark stage design, with its unlimited intellectual and emotional symbolism, creates an intentional void- we have seen enough of replicating realism of fatiguing chandeliers and old dusty Parisian gowns in other productions- but no one will ever forget the short red dress and the clock, and the intelligent directing and stellar singing and acting, which have sealded the fate of all La Traviatas to come in one's liftime.
With no curtains to rise and a bare stage, and with Violetta present from the very beginning, the drama unfolds with convincing pathos as soon as the first orchestral bar is played. Violetta's choreographic moves across the stage to meet her untimely and tragic death is the creation of a genius- Decker- and the execution of a consumate artist- Netrebko. This is the most innovative, the most emotional, and the most dramatic and live prelude or "overture" or "prologue," if you will, of all La Traviatas you'll ever see.

In Decker's brilliant and unparalleled staging, every nuance has a redeeming value that slowly depicts the cleansing and tranformation of Violetta's soul ready to meet her Maker. After a determined and enlightened Violetta confronts reality, she understands that the frolicking of the last few months with Alfredo is over, and that she lives on borrowed time. She first uncovers the clock, accepting her fate and that her time is running out.

Anna Netrebko delivers a sexy, sizzling performance as the courtesan, Violetta. Not only can this acclaimed Russian Diva sing but we now learn she can act. She is both beguiling and captivating as she succumbs to the ardent overtures of her lover, Alfredo charecterized skillfully and convincingly by the Mexican born tenor, Rolando Villazon.

One can audibly hear the smacking of lips as the two lovers come together in passionate embrace. There is no holding back in this daring production as we see Netrebko lasciviously entice Villazon by lying on her back upon a sumptuous sofa, one leg bent and teasingly drawing back her brilliant red skirt to expose a shapely upper thigh.

Certainly it is one of the great contemporary productions noted for its stark minimalist set as staged by Willy Decker. There is symbolism aplenty however as the hands of the giant clock turn feverishly and unrelentingly to illustrate that Violetta's inevitable death is imminent.

Not only are Netrebko and Villazon perfectly cast but the admired American baritone, Thomas Hampson delivers a superb performance as Alfredo's anguished father, Giorgio.

Decker's production is unflinching and uncompromising as the human pathos unwinds with true love being found and lost in a heart rending climax.

To top it all Carlo Rizzi conducts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra so masterfully prompting riotous acclaim from the audience not seen since his great pre-decessor, Herbert von Karajan.

For opera buffs this is a "must have" and for opera novices or initiates do yourself a favor, take some time out, sit down and be entranced as the essence of this human tragedy is revealed.

If this courtesan, "La Traviata" does not seduce you, nothing will!!
