Christa Ludwig is simply magnificent as Madelon. The conducting is generous and luxurious, and the playing -- the National Philharmonic Orchestra once more -- is high quality and efficient. The singing of the principals is similar: Luciano Pavarotti lavishes lashings of his golden tone on Chénier to eloquent and supremely musical effect . . . Leo Nucci's Gérard is smooth and idiomatic . . .
