This production of Verdi's I Vespri Siciliani is considered one of the most definitive versions available. Recorded at Teatro Regio di Parma, with Massimo Zanetti conducting, it stars Leo Nucci, Fabio Armiliato, Giacomo Prestia, and Daniela Dessi.

“Massimo Zanetti’s great virtue as a conductor is the unobtrusive, precisely crafted framework he creates for his performers. All four principals are terrifically idiomatic… Dessì’s Elena…is fascinating to watch - dark, handsome, fully in command of the stage and every inch the tragic heroine.” – Opera News

“Daniela Dessì has a great smoky, sullen voice well poised to create dramatic tension amongst friends and foes. Fabio Armiliato has a demonstrative spike in his declamations, and the “Grand Duet” with Elena is simply grand.” –
