Verdi: Simon Boccanegra



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Placido Domingo's triumphant"return" to his baritone roots (his first debut with the Mexican National Opera, in 1959, was as a baritone), is captured in this stunning DVD of the Teatro alla Scala's 2010 production of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra. Domingo is joined by Anja Harteros, Ferruccio Furlanetto and Fabio Sartori in this Daniel Barenboim conducted performance, directed by Federico Tiezzi. Placido Domingo's intention had been to bring down the curtain on his career in the (baritone) role of Simon Boccanegra. One can only hope - for our sake as well as his - that this truly great tenor of the modern era reneges on his promise and remains a unique vocal and dramatic presence on the opera stage long after the 70th birthday celebrations that were held in his honour on 21 January 2011.

"The Scala's critical audience celebrated Placido Domingo's return to the stage with a 15-minute ovation." EL MUNDO
