"This is a very poor, bad recording."
Do not be fooled...

"Mario Del Monaco and Tito Gobbi do perform in this piece... However,this is a film for those who does not really like opera and out of curiosity, just to find out the story, would not mind to sit down and listen to one or two tiny little pieces of the opera along with it. All the beautiful music of Verdi stays in the background, and all the captivating arias, duettos, etc. are simply left out and even The Quartet! You can forget about it, THERE IS NO QUARTET! just a "headline" of it. My 2 stars are not intended to the opera performance, but to the director of the film."
Not an Opera

"This is not close to an opera. We are given only a few arias and snatches of orchestral passages. The story is nearly left to stand on its own as a movie--which it does not do very well. It falls flat. If you have ever--seeing Shakespeare's OTHELLO--felt the need of Verdi's OTELLO music, you will have a similar, but much stronger, feeling here. The voices are excellent--what little we hear of them. Was orchestral sound no better than this in 1946?"
