Notes and Editorial Reviews

Plácido Domingo returns to his musical roots in a rare staging of Manuel Penella’s El Gato Montés (The Wild Cat).

Verónica Villarroel portrays the peasant girl, torn by her love for the dashing bandit, sung by Justino Díaz, and heroic matador Rafael, sung by Pllácido Domingo.

Jealous love, misplaced honor and noble revenge all form part of the Los Angeles Music Center Opera’s production of El Gato Montés.

In a short introduction, Domingo reminisces about performing in, and growing to love, this opera with his parents and sister during his childhood.

Recorded at the Los Angeles Music Center in 1994.

English subtitles.
