 A must for Carreras fans December 30, 2011 By Brian Lowery (Kearneysville, WV) See All My Reviews "This is a good recording, but it is the four act version and missing is the opening Fountainebleu scene. Carreras steals the show and his ardent tenor makes you feel for Carlo. At the same time his heroic voice makes Carlo a more admirable character. Other performances leave the main character more to be pitied than admired. Again, I can't recommend this enough for Carreras fans. The rest of characters are done well by an outstanding cast, but the orchestration by Herbert Von Karajan just missed the mark for me. It was good, but just didn't sizzle as Verdi intended."
