This outstanding production of Giuseppe Verdi's tragic opera stars Mirella Freni as the gentle heroine pursued by Placido Domingo, Renato Bruson and Nicolai Ghiaurov. The cast gives an impassioned performance under the baton of Riccardo Muti. Based on Victor Hugo's play, this violent and somber story of frustrated passion and ambition is set by the composer to a succession of irresistible tunes unsurpassed even in his mature works.
