Il Travatore-Pavarotti-Milnes-Marton-Zakick
Wayne R. Klatt | Chicago, IL | 05/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have never seen a better Il Travatore, with exciting singing all round and an emphasis on the role of fate. Pavarotti's duets with Dolora Zajick as the old gypsy are among the most affecting scenes in opera.

An opera amteur says...
W. Andrews | 01/21/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Many parts in this opera seem mis-cast. In particular, Eva Marton as Leonora was a bad choice. I want a more girlish singer for the role of a young woman...not a late-middle aged matron with huge and glorious pipes. Most of the characters were wooden and expressionless--Levine had more drama in his face than any of the players. Pavarotti was incredible to listen to but very wooden to watch. All of the players seemed to be watching their step all the time on that set. Zajik was the one singer who stood out to me. Passionate, not just powerful; she took total possesion of the role. One final complaint: I thought the orchestra was too quiet on this disc. I wanted to hear Verdi, not just his librettist.
