Verdi at the Met captures the drama of Verdi’s greatest operas as they were performed live at The Metropolitan Opera in New York. These ten recordings cover four decades starting with La Traviata in 1935 and feature some of the best-loved voices and conductors of the twentieth century. The famous pairing of tenor Richard Tucker and baritone Leonard Warren can be heard in Simon Boccanegra and La Forza del Destino. Also included are Carlo Bergonzi, Grace Bumbry, Leontyne Price and Robert Merrill singing the leading roles in Aida.
