…Opera Australia’s extravagant new production of La Traviata proves quite an entertaining experience on DVD [also available on CD and Blu-ray].

Much of the show’s success is due to the superb Violetta of soprano Emma Matthews, an adept performer who has it all—an engaging stage presence, interpretive depth and a lovely, expressive voice with high E-flats to burn.

…conductor Brian Castles-Onion and the orchestra give a taut, satisfying reading of Verdi’s score…Opera Australia’s DVD presentation of the event could hardly be bettered, with strong camerawork and detailed, well-balanced sound. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review
