La Traviata, Rigoletto, Tosca (4 DVD Box Set) - Domingo
The three unique productions were the fruit of Andrea Andermann`s vision to perform and film Verdi`s La Traviata and Rigoletto, and Puccini`s Tosca at the actual places and hours of the day specified in the libretti, namely in Paris, Mantua and Rome respectively.
The singers were acting and singing live on location while conductor Zubin Mehta and the orchestra performed miles away in a studio, connected to the singers only by monitors and hidden speakers.
The project involved some of the most complex audio- visual operations ever attempted. The results garnered prestigious Emmy, Prix d`Italia and Bafta awards and remain unsurpassed milestones for the genre of operatic film.
The star casts include Plácido Domingo, Julia Novikova, Vittorio Grigolo, Ruggero Raimondi, Catherine Malfitano, José Cura and Eteri Gvazava. The performances are delivered in luxurious boxed sets.
The accompanying 160-page, hard cover book provides background information on the productions, plus a lavish photo collection.

Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata (The Fallen Woman) is a three-act opera based on “La Dame aux Camelias”, adapted from the novel by
Alexandre Dumas. The play is still staged today in its original form.
Originally titled, Violetta after the main character, La Traviata is one of the composer’s most frequently performed operas.
The story is of Violetta, a beautiful courtesan of Paris, Alfredo, her handsome, yet penniless lover and Alfredo’s father, Germont, who destroys their love.
The Met’s 2018–19 production of Verdi's heartbreaking classic featured a decadent 18th-century Paris played out against a stunning backdrop that changed with the seasons and the nature of Violetta and Alfredo's doomed, but exquisitely beautiful romance.
La Traviata made its world premiere in Venice at the Teatro la Fenice, on March 6, 1853.
