“Muti reveals all the beauty and subtlety of Bellini’s scoring, emphasizing the opera’s romantic eloquence and giving its tautly shaped scenes the benefit of his understanding of the flow and pulse of the score.” — Gramophone

Riccardo Muti leads the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and a star-studded cast in Vincenzo Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi, which was met with critical acclaim in 1984 and again with this reissued album on Warner Classics. Bonus disc includes synopsis and libretto with translation.
