The plot of Verdi’s dark opera on the power of fate provides little comfort to its struggling characters, but it offers listeners one spellbinding musical moment after another, and it gives singers a string of marvelous opportunities to shine. Deborah Voigt gives a stirring performance in the role of Leonora, her voice effortlessly rising above orchestra and chorus. Tenor Salvatore Licitra is a passionate Alvaro, the man whose impetuous actions result in a lifetime of heartache for everyone. Samuel Ramey sings Padre Guardiano, with Gianandrea Noseda conducting.
