"The event of the week for me, however, was undoubtedly the Chelsea Opera Group’s concert performance at Queen Elizabeth Hall of Verdi’s La Traviata. Gianluca Marciano conducted a splendidly paced account, and Cosmin Ifrim as Alfredo, and Alan Opie as his father, sang robustly and captivatingly. Nelly Miricioiu seemed to bring a lifetime’s experience, aptly enough, to the role of Violetta, but her vocal instrument was in impeccable form. Right to that all-important single-note affirmative dying cry, she was well-nigh transcendent."
