I think this is the only full-length opera DVD with Price on it. She gets lots of emotion into her voice, but there's never any on her face. When she hits a high note it sounds so gorgeous you just want to keel over dead. I've never seen or heard Giuseppe Giacomini before, but he's wonderful as Don Alvaro. He has a very nice voice, and he can be powerful or gentle as the role requires. Leo Nucci has never thrilled me, but he's pretty good here as Don Carlo, especially when in confrontation with Giacomini. This is from an unedited show in 1984. The sound is very good, and the picture is a little dark. Sets and costumes are very good. The final trio is a heart-wrencher.
