Listen to a Sample:
- For an opera that is already pretty dramatic, Leonie Rysanek manages to dial the energy and intensity of Puccini's score up a few more notches, all while finding more than a few opportunities to display the sublime lyricism of her instrument.
- Vladimir Atlantov proves a good match for Rysanek in both vocal power and artistic temperament.
- Gianpiero Mastromei brings suave elegance to the role of Scarpia.
- None to mention.
