Musically, this is a fine production . . . The sound (in the three usual formats) is spectacular . . . it will be a "must have" for Price's fans.

The art of the great American soprano Leontyne Price is displayed in a terrific performance by the Metropolitan Opera of Verdi¿s ``La Forza del Destino¿¿ . . . With a youthful-looking James Levine igniting orchestral sizzle, the performance evokes both thrill and regret at the passing of a style and a star . . . As this performance reminds, since Price¿s retirement from the opera stage in 1985 there hasn¿t been a Verdi soprano of her caliber. She¿s regal and touching as Leonora, focused on projecting character without a trace of diva posturing.

James Levine zeigte . . . eine flammende Leidenschaft . . .

Ein künstlerisch sehr gelungener Opernfilm, der seine Intensität auch aus der federnden Musizierweise Riccardo Chaillys mit Chor und Orchester des Teatro Comunale di Bologna gewinnt.

On admire la belle direction de Levine . . . L. Price a le profil impérial . . .

La calidad de esta retransmisión televisiva es excelente y nos permite apreciar en su justa medida una producción de John Dexter . . . Este DVD en dos discos permite pues disfrutar de una obra tan vistosa en el formato de gran espectáculo que es la tónica habitual del Met.
