James Levine conducts a brilliant cast in this sweeping performance of Verdi’s rarely heard opera, led by Plácido Domingo in the title role of a Protestant minister. Sharon Sweet is his wife, Lina, who has been lured into adultery, leaving Stiffelio caught between his desire for revenge and his religion’s admonition to forgive. This Giancarlo Del Monaco production also stars Vladimir Chernov as Stankar, Lina’s father, Peter Riberi as her lover, Raffaele, and Paul Plishka as Jorg.
