Fleming’s Traviata

Fleming’s Traviata

Renée Fleming has demonstrated to be one of the finest sopranos: a singer with a sparkling personality and a velvet voice that is capable of wringing the finest emotions out of works by Strauss and Verdi, and many other composers. She brings a distinct quality to the role of Violetta, with an emotional performance that is sure to please. She is nicely supported by Antonio Pappano’s conducting of the Royal Opera House Orchestra in an effective production by Richard Eyre.

Comment by the Guardian:

“…Antonio Pappano takes charge of this revival, searching out the meaning of Verdi’s score in a supple, sentient reading that sweeps you along.”
