A Trio of Traviatas

Here are three Traviatas you can view (for now) in their entirety. Each has its charms (and foibles) and all are (mostly) beautifully sung.

A classic 1968 film version (with initially distracting lip-synching):

A more recent (2007), yet still "traditional" star-studded version (though I personally was not thrilled with the baritone in this one):

A very recent (2014), rather controversial version (although I'm a Regie fan, I had trouble with this staging, and with poor Violetta's unfortunate wardrobe):
