Orchestr and Chorus of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Antonio Pappano

Penguin Guide
With all three principals the clarity of words adds to the power of this Pappano performance, most strikingly with Gheorghiu, who constantly sheds new light on one phrase after another...a great performance, significantly expanding on what we already know of her, as magnetic as Callas's, rich and beautiful as well as dramatic...a classic among the many versions of this opera.
