Star tenor Plácido Domingo brings romantic ardor and stylish vocalism to the role of Don José, the honest soldier lured to his doom by the free-spirited gypsy of the title, sung by Maria Ewing.

One of Verdi's most popular operas receives a blazingly dramatic performance by a sensational cast: Montserrat Caballé is Leonora, the young noblewoman caught between two feuding archenemies: her beloved, the troubadour and rebel leader Manrico (Plácido Domingo), and the aristocratic, villainous Count di Luna (Robert Merrill). Fiorenza Cossotto is Azucena, the passionate gypsy whose actions, years before, set the dramatic events in motion

For Verdi fans, this performance of his dark, magnificent opera is something of a touchstone. James Levine knows just how to bring all the elements in this sprawling canvas together in one gripping picture. The legendary Leontyne Price is spectacular as Leonora, desperately in love with Alvaro (Plácido Domingo at his most incandescent), even after fate wrenches them apart. Cornell MacNeil is Don Carlo, Leonora's vengeful brother, and Martti Talvela is the compassionate Padre Guardiano

The corrupt police chief Scarpia (Cornell MacNeil) is after the escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti (James Courtney), who is friends with Mario. The treacherous Scarpia arrests Mario, Angelotti kills himself, and Tosca gets homicidal. Several murders and betrayals later, the conclusion involves Mario and Tosca before a firing squad in the dramatic final act. Conducted by Guiseppe Sinopoli
