Total Playing Time: 2:05:07

[There is no better way to remember the dramatically compelling soprano Shirley Verrett] than with her first Met "Tosca" . . . [Luciano Pavarotti] is Cavaradossi at the top of his game . . . [Tito Gobbi] directs the gripping production . . . [James Conlon] conducts as though he is having the time of his life. The bonus features are a treat, especially the 10 minutes of Pavarotti, Verrett and Conlon rehearsing at the piano.

Verrett is here a very good soprano . . . She looks beautiful and often sings beautifully . . . [Luciano Pavarotti] sings attractively . . . Young James Conlon's conducting is solid, often intense . . .

. . . a marvelous cast under the direction of James Conlon . . . the singing and orchestral playing are first-rate . . . James Conlon conducts with youthful blaze yet provides time and space for his singers to sing their roles properly.
