[Only available to stream in select countries. See FAQs for more details.] Who could resist the passionate tale of a poor but high-minded poet who falls for an aristocratic lady, only to end up persecuted by the very revolution he himself supported? Mix in one jealous rival for the lady’s hand, who also happens to wield enormous power with the revolution. With the right singers, the drama just leaps from the page—or the speakers. Zinka Milanov, Richard Tucker, and Leonard Warren all more than deliver the vocal goods in this performance.
