Notes and Editorial Reviews

Plácido Domingo in another of his signature roles tries heroically to resist Olga Borodina’s seductive Delilah. This performance from the opening of the 1998 season marked the 30th year of Plácido Domingo performing at the MET as well as equaling the record of 17 consecutive Met opening nights set by Caruso back at the beginning of the century.
