Naxos has released a DVD recording of Verdi’s La Traviata, with an all-star cast featuring Marina Rebeka as Violetta Valéry, Francesco Demuro as Alfredo Germont and Thomas Hampson as his father, Giorgio Germont. Canadian conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson is at the podium, leading the NDR Radiophilharmonie.
Ms. Rebeka will next sing Verdi’s tragic heroine on February 2018, at the Opera Bastille in Paris. Of her performance at the Royal Opera House, A Younger Theatre wrote, “Marina Rebeka is very secure in the role of Violetta… producing one of the best ‘Sempre Liberas’ I have heard.”
This DVD was released on July 14, now available via NAXOSdirekt
