But it all goes tragically wrong

Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

Sherrill Milnes is the magnetic Don and Leontyne Price the avenging Donna Anna. Irrepressible Teresa Stratas (Zerlina) is the peasant woman who can't say "no" but can't quite say "yes," either
