Traviata Clip of the Day – Moffo & Stratas

Back to everyone’s favorite scene – I love a good “Amami Alfredo” to start the weekend…

Here are two impressive filmed versions of Traviata – The first Anna Moffo and Franco Bonisolli from Rome, directed by Mario Lanfranchi, the second Teresa Stratas with a very young Placido Domingo in a Zeffirelli production. Patane conducts the first and Levine the second. (Compare Anna Moffo here in a very beautiful performance to the deliciously ridiulous post of her “Sempre libera” a few days ago – interesting…)
