The Official Opening of the Social Season on the Hollywood Beat is the Opening Night Gala of the Los Angeles Opera. And what an auspicious evening that was! Renowned Diva Renee Fleming made her first appearance with the company, in the role of Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata, co-starring with Rolando Villazon, the magnetic Mexican born tenor. The two handsome artists, who have received international acclaim, were joined by musical director, James Conlon, making his debut with the Opera Company. All this, and a production staged by Marta Domingo! Who could ask for anything more? All three performances, featuring Fleming, are being filmed by Decca for release on DVD.
