 Full sound full text May 3, 2013 By J S E T. (West Grove, PA) See All My Reviews "This Trovatore gives us a full text, including some additions for the Paris Opera. I must admit I like them. I like the repeats. This Trovatore also gives us fine virtuoso singing and very rich orchestral playing. It is a performance of heart and swagger. The two disc version omits the ballet but keeps everything else for a lower price. It seems to me if you are going for this set, get the full show, ballet and all!" Report Abuse
