This famous 1994 performance of Verdi's romantic tragedy captures one of the most sensational debuts in operatic history. Singing Violetta for the first time was the young Romanian soprano, Angela Gheorghiu, whose remarkable interpretation reached the front pages of the world's press and led the BBC immediately to film the production. Equally notable was the masterly conducting of Georg Solti and director Richard Eyre's stylish staging. This DVD presents the definitive record of a momentous occasion.
