Notes and Editorial Reviews

Placido Domingo performs one of his signature roles in this thrilling Covent Garden production of Verdi's operatic tale of jealous love. Starring Dame Kiri Te Kanawa as Desdemona, Sergei Leiferkus as Iago, and conducted by Sir Georg Solti. Also starring Roderick Earle, Robin Leggate, Ramon Remedios, Claire Powell, Christopher Lackner, and Mark Beesley.

"Domingo has surely never sounded finer in the part... on top of things vocally, he cuts a dashing figure on the stage, he has undeniable presence and his chemistry with Te Kanawa is magical. Their love duet together is a reminder of the ease they normally shared together on stage. The third-act monologue is deeply moving, a perfect showcase for Domingo's talents at vocal
Read more acting, whilst he conveys the character's resignation and heavy heart during the death scene." --

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
