4. Verdi: Prelude to La Traviata (Riccardo Muti / Philharmonia Orchestra)
This is a tense and taut beginning to Verdi's epic opera, foretelling the tragedy to come. In fact, La Traviata translates into English as 'The Fallen Woman' - possibly a link to Anastasia Steele…? The picture shows Ailyn Perez as La Traviata herself, Violetta Valery.
