Don Carlo - Vickers, Jones, Siepi, Bordoni, Randova. Vienna Staatsoper  1975
This Vienna Staatsoper performance features a superb cast in one of Verdi's most difficult operas to stage well. Vickers' Don Carlo is powerful, passionate, and vocally secure, while Gwyneth Jones voice still carries the purity that was marred by later vocal problems. The entire cast sings as though their lives depended on it and we are left with ban exciting, dynamic performance.The sound is good.
