    Me thinks that the Fleming/Villazon DVD would top out all these others and perhaps is the best Traviata bar none. Or course I have not seen them all.

    As for the Gheorghiu/Lopardo DVD, it is not as good as Fleming and I sense some hint of amateurishness with Gheorghiu in the acting department, as if she is still somewhat learning the role or perhaps just a tad uneasy, which perhaps makes her appear uncomfortable in the role (prostitute), which would be very uncharacteristic of a seasoned courtesan, yet a very nice performance [sorry, won't win any writing awards with such a string on sentence, but ...] . I think I like this one better on CD because the singing is very nice IMO.
