Listen to a Sample:


If you were waiting for an occasion to fall in love with I Vespri Siciliani, this is it! Montserrat Caballé is astonishing as Elena making the backbreaking demands of this role seem like child's play. No doubt she must have been inspired having a leading man like Placido Domingo next to her and the two of them set the stage on fire. The sound is great.
