  • A superb Florence production of one of Mozart's finest operas by distinguished English director Sir Jonathan Miller.
  • The artistic director of the renowned Maggio Musicale festival Zubin Mehta brings out not only the tension and drive of the music but also its harmonic richness.
  • Soprano Eteri Gvazava - internationally known since her sensational Traviata à Paris filming partnering José Cura - is wonderful to listen to and to look at as the sad but contriving Countess Almaviva. Patrizia Ciofi, the Italian belcanto star who scored highest praise as Violetta in the 2004 La Scala production of La Traviata under Riccardo Muti, is Susanna with all her intriguing acting skills and her pointed vocal intensitiy. Lucio Gallo as the count and the evil character in the plot is one of the foremost Italian baritones. The title role is sung by Giorgio Surian, a bass-baritone who started off on the Italian opera scene, but has since made a steady career on international opera houses.
