“This is an outright winner … I am sure that Verdi would have liked Muti’s concentration on essentials and the way he suggests a real theatrical experience.”

“Montserrat Caballé's Ethiopian slave-girl is tender, subtle and often thrilling. By her side, her rival Fiorenza Cossotto's Egyptian princess Amneris is sinuous yet simultaneously sumptuous. Placido Domingo is in golden voice...and Piero Cappuccilli makes a stern and implacable Amonasro...Most recordings of this opera have a weakness here or there; this has none.”
