“The orchestra of La Scala is in exceptional form and proves itself equal to every nuance of the unfolding drama, whilst the incomparably well-matched cast of soloists sings as if life itself depended on it . . . A musical achievement of such stature is nothing short of heroic.” — MusicWeb International

Riccardo Muti and the forces assembled under his baton present Verdi’s iconic La traviata — the tragic love story of the courtesan Violetta and the romantic Alfredo Germont, a love threatening to shame his family. Recorded live at the Teatro alla Scala, 1992.
