The combination of Leontyne Price and Franco Corelli sent audiences into delirium. Her rich, soaring soprano perfectly matched his ardent, romantic tenor. The year after their history-making joint debut at the Met, they were paired in Puccini's gripping tale of deception and revenge. Price, in the title role of Rome's most famous singer, is forced to deal with the nefarious Baron Scarpia, the chief of police (Cornell MacNeil) in a desperate attempt to free her lover (Corelli), imprisoned for his political beliefs. But it all goes tragically wrong

La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

96 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verdi painted an immense canvas with this dark but tuneful opera. The legendary Leontyne Price is seen in one of her greatest roles, Leonora. Price's soaring voice encompasses every nuance of Leonora's emotion as she moves from joy through resignation to ultimate heartbreak. James Levine's brilliant leading of the Met orchestra and chorus is a lesson in Verdi style. Giuseppe Giacomini is Alvaro, the man Leonora loves, and Leo Nucci is Don Carlo, the dark instrument of their Fate

A marvelous cast vividly brings to life Verdi's passionate story of love, betrayal, and revenge. Suave-voiced Carlo Bergonzi, often called the poet of tenors, is the Swedish king in love with Amelia (the glorious Leontyne Price in stupendous form). But she is the wife of his best friend and confidant, Count Anckarström (the great baritone Robert Merrill) who discovers the lovers' secret and assassinates the king at a royal ball. Roberta Peters is the perky page Oscar and Mignon Dunn is the fortuneteller Ulrica. A stellar lineup of singers from top to bottom
