Placido Domingo at his vocal and dramatic bestJanuary 31, 2013By Hugh O. (Tucson, AZ)See All My Reviews"Well worth buying and watching and listening. Both principals sang beautifully. The dramatic force of Placido's performance made it almost a religious experience. I think Shirley Verret's portrayal of Delilah as a totally heartless secret service operative could have been a bit more nuanced."Report Abuse
