Every once in a while the operatic stars align to create that rare performance that makes a familiar work sound brand new.

Bidú Sayão is his beloved daughter Gilda, who captures the attention of the lascivious Duke, sung by the elegant and sweet-voiced Jussi Bjoerling. This is Verdi singing at its best
