Leontyne Price is simply stunning! The entire production is magnificent. This is one of Verdi's finest operas. The cinematography is good and the fine sets add to the whole production. The dueling scene and, of course, the superb "Pace, Pace, Mio Dio" at the end of the opera is most eloquently rendered by Leontyne Price. She has a warm, lustrous voice and she gives her all to every performance.
