    ^^^^ My bad jumping to Tosca, but you do need the 56 MET version a saturday radio broadcast in great live sound. Tebaldi really wonderful here in top vocal form with added tension of live performance. No Gobbi as Scarpia but the MET duo of Tucker/Warren perform at high standards of the time.....really cheap now $9 Amazon USA, usually cost much more buy buy......

    It could easily have been included in recent live MET series on Sony, but they went with 62 Price Corelli version



    Back to Traviata..........

    Just one more enjoyable performance I have but didn't mention (maybe that's because I have too many!) is Studier with Levine and Pavarotti.

    Made to please Pavarotti and Mrs Emily Landouwer who sponsors this recording.

    Callas was possibly the greatest Violetta of all time.

    This is my favourite of her versions and the sound is good for a live recording:

    The only non-Callas version I really enjoy is this one (which is I think complete and also recorded at Covent Garden, so a nice complement to the above.)
