Joan Sutherland

Verdi: La Traviata (2CD)

La traviata – the ultimate opera of love and loss – is a great favourite of opera-goers and here Eloquence releases Joan Sutherland’s first recording of La Traviata, complete on 2CDs. It is for many, her greatest recorded portrayal of the doomed heroine Violetta. Her Alfredo is the ‘simply supreme’ (Gramophone) Carlo Bergonzi and Sir John Pritchard conducts a ‘most persuasive, well-balanced and well-timed account’ (Gramophone) of this magnificent opera.
