* Filmed at the Metropolitan Opera in 1983, Berlioz's masterpiece Les Troyens is a tragic tale of love and fate based on Virgil's Aeneid.
* Under the baton of James Levine, Jessye Norman is stunning in the part of Cassandra and Plácido Domingo makes for a strong, compelling Aeneas. This benchmark performance was hailed by both critics and audiences and performed to greatest critical acclaim.
