Product Description


The role of Violetta in La Traviata is one which Verdi might well have composed with Anna Moffo in mind. Possessing a singular beauty of voice and appearance, the soprano succeeds brilliantly in fulfilling the composer’s difficult musical and dramatic demands. It is especially fortunate that Miss Moffo’s celebrated portrayal has been captured in Mario Lanfranchi’s cinematic treatment, a sumptuously beautiful and emotionally powerful film. In Italian, with optional English subtitles.
