(4 out of 5 stars)
"Despite its being explicitly recycled material, and Verdi's having reached that point where one sometimes thinks he only has a few basic tunes that he uses over and over again, this recording is a delight. Carreras is at his silvery best, showing that he could be a superlative Verdi tenor and Ricciarelli gives a most memorable performance. Until near the end the live audience is kept well out of it, though towards the end the clapping does interfere with the music. The lack of a libretto is highly regrettable, especially as one is not likely to have any other versions."
