The combination of Leontyne Price and Franco Corelli sent audiences into delirium. Her rich, soaring soprano perfectly matched his ardent, romantic tenor. The year after their history-making joint debut at the Met, they were paired in Puccini's gripping tale of deception and revenge. Price, in the title role of Rome's most famous singer, is forced to deal with the nefarious Baron Scarpia, the chief of police (Cornell MacNeil) in a desperate attempt to free her lover (Corelli), imprisoned for his political beliefs. But it all goes tragically wrong

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

A marvelous cast vividly brings to life Verdi's passionate story of love, betrayal, and revenge.

But she is the wife of his best friend and confidant, Count Anckarström (the great baritone Robert Merrill) who discovers the lovers' secret and assassinates the king at a royal ball. Roberta Peters is the perky page Oscar and Mignon Dunn is the fortuneteller Ulrica. A stellar lineup of singers from top to bottom
