    I now have reason to love this opera and no longer hate it. Renee says it from 19:00 to 19:40: "She [Violetta] ultimately has more integrity than every other character in the piece..."

    There are more of that set and with different book cover out there for ridiculously low prices like that, but.... beware, many sell these as books and the disks may or may not be present--even if the generic description says so. I always find one that says the disks are included. In this case, the images actually showed both disks.
