Notes & Reviews:

Filmed at the Metropolitan Opera in 1983, Berlioz's masterpiece Les Troyens is a tragic tale of love and fate based on Virgil's Aeneid. Under the baton of James Levine, Jessye Norman is stunning in the part of Cassandra and Plácido Domingo makes for a strong, compelling Aeneas. This benchmark performance was hailed by both critics and audiences and performed to greatest critical acclaim. Norman's role debut as Cassandra emerged as one her most significant and compelling performances, and this DVD is also a stand-out release among Domingo’s extensive filmography.
