Two of opera's biggest stars, Renée Fleming and Rolando Villazón, sing one of the world's best-loved operas together on DVD, in the sumptuous Los Angeles production of Verdi's tragic masterpiece, La Traviata.

Fleming sings Violetta on DVD for the first time. Villazón is the perfect dramatic partner.

"Of all my operatic repertoire in recent years, Violetta was the one role I felt that I needed to sing..." Renée Fleming

"My music was played, I came in and my eye's met Renée's eyes. That gorgeous look. I became Alfredo and all I wanted to do was melt Violetta's heart with the fire of my soul." Rolando Villazón

The lavish, traditional large-scale production, directed by Marta Domingo, has all the glamour one has come to expect from a period production. Beautiful sets and costumes add to the spectacle.

Veteran Verdi baritone Renato Bruson sings the role of Alfredo's father, Germont.

Filmed in Hi-Definition Widescreen.

Extras include a photo gallery with production shots.
