An hommage to one of the most outstanding and charismatic operatic artists: Placido Domingo. By now he has sung over 120 different roles, more than any other tenor in the annals of music. His repertoire spans the gamut from Mozart to Verdi, from Berlioz to Puccini, from Wagner to Ginastera. He sings in every important opera house in the world and has made an unparalleled amount of recordings. This edition combined the two performances La Gioconda and L'Africaine, featuring Domingo playing the leading roles as well as internationally renowned stars like Eva Marton and Shirley Verrett. Domingo as Enzo and Marton as Gioconda ensure an unforgettable operatic experience. An hommage to one of the most outstanding and charismatic operatic artists: Placido Domingo.
