Six interesting and complicated characters are enmeshed in a web of Church and State where their actions affect not only one another, but the fate of three nations. And on every level Verdi rises to the subject with some of his most powerful and passionate music ... in Giulini’s performance, it becomes a tense, gripping drama in which every episode and every action has its part to play. - Gramophone.
