Description

Verdi: La traviata – From our review

Despite the fact that Renata Tebaldi has sung the role of Violetta Valéry for more than ten years during her career, nowadays she is more commonly associated with Tosca, La forza del destino (studio recording, 1955 and Naples, 1958), La Bohème and La Gioconda. Definitely, La Traviata is not one of the first operas that come to someone’s mind when thinking about Tebaldi’s repertoire and I think there are at least two reasons to explain this fact.
