Recorded live in 1978
“I doubt you'll hear or see a better show: Levine, in his early prime, leads with respect for the music and the verismo tradition and whips the action into a melodramatic frenzy...Domingo sings both tenor leads tirelessly, with bite, ringing tone, sincerity and passion...this is clearly a superstar. He reacts as well as acts; of course it helps that he's opposite two blazing women co-stars...Not perfect performances, but they will leave you breathless nonetheless.”
“[Troyanos] is glorious...Domingo is as close to the ideal as possible...Not many tenors have the stamina to sing both Turiddu and Canio on the same evening, but Domingo has...The sound is not in the same class as the performance but is acceptable. With a well-nigh perfect Pagliacci and a slightly flawed Cavalleria rusticana this is a good buy.”
