Life Alert: Anna Netrebko Returns to “La Traviata” at La Scala

“Seldom does one see a characterization that both attempts and achieves so much. This complex, real Violetta was an even, nuanced melding of class, profession, illness, age, and spirituality. It transcended the “tart with a heart” stereotype and rendered a stark picture of the damaged, degraded life of a sick, insecure yet self-aware sex worker whose only out is suddenly taken from her.”

Netrebko and Meli La TraviataPlease head over to Parterre Box to read my thoughts on Anna Netrebko‘s magnificent return to the role of Violetta in La Traviata at Teatro alla Scala in Milan last week. With a cast including Francesco Meli and Leo Nucci, it was a performance that won’t soon be forgotten.
