For someone who doesn't particularly like opera to rate this a ten must mean that there is something amazing going on here. It's not just Verdi's music, which is incredible, not just the terrific singing and acting from Stratas (unbelievable performance), Domingo and company, not just Zeffirelli's brilliant direction, but also the beautiful costuming, perfect lighting and out-of-this-world art decoration and set design. And let's not forget the great photography, especially during the ball scenes. It's one of the best musical entertainments ever committed to celluloid - and this from one who loves musicals. It's an unforgettable movie experience - so how is that, as of Dec. 2020, it only rates a 7.0 on IMDB?! Come on people, broaden your horizons and show your appreciation for this brilliant work.
