La Traviata from The Met – Only 3 More Days of the Radio Broadcast Archive

If you missed the Met's direct webcast of this year's La Traviata, then zoned out last Saturday and missed the radio broadcast (like I did), BBC Radio 3 is giving you one more another chance! There are still 3 days left to hear this performance. 

Violetta Valery...........Diana Damrau
Alfredo Germont...........Saimir Pirgu
Giorgio Germont..Placido Domingo
And a host of others…plus

The Chorus and Orchestra of The Metropolitan Opera, New York
Yannick Nezet-Seguin, conductor. 


  1. I listened to both the opening night and the saturday broadcast and absolutely loved them! I did get a bit worried when Peter Gelb started talking before act 2 though, I thought Placido wasn't going to go on because he had said earlier that he had a flu, thank God he did go on :)

    1. Yes, I had the same reaction to PG. He is not good at presenting information, is he? I need to get over to BBC Radio 3 and listen to the rest of the broadcast. (I've only heard bits and pieces so far.)
