Verdi: Il trovatore DVD (Metropolitan Opera)

Acclaim for this Il trovatore: ‘Álvarez made a stalwart, passionate, masculine figure… Radvanovsky has all the technical devices necessary for Leonora, and she is, moreover, a passionate actress… Hvorostovsky sang with superb, flawless line, total control and long, flowing high notes… Zajick held down Azucena powerfully, lacking nothing obvious of the mad gypsy's force of character… The opera’s end I have never seen staged or acted more convincingly.’ (Opera Today)
