Superstar Renée Fleming sings one of the most famous roles in all of opera, the beautiful and riveting courtesan Violetta. She could have any man in Paris, but she throws it all away for her one chance at true love with Alfredo (Ramón Vargas). But Alfredo’s father—the sensational Dmitri Hvorostovsky—afraid of a scandal is determined to break the couple up. Valery Gergiev leads one of Verdi’s most tender, and most touching scores.
