Notes & Reviews:

"People who don't like Eurotrash or any other type of updated operatic stagin, take note: this 1983 Met centennial new production of 'Ernani' is a good old-fashioned sand-up-and sing as splendidly as possible affair. How else can Verdi's fifth opera be done?... This is swashbuckling, romantic melodrama pure and simple... It's always enjoyable to watch James Levine's face, which of course one can't do from the Met audience. His expressions are intense and enthusiastic - like a kid playing with his favorite toys... As always at a Levine performance, the Met Orchestra plays its collective heart out... This is a great-looking show that makes an old fogey like me nostalgic for the good old days when 'Ernani' could be cast with many a fine singer." -American Record Guide
