Placido Domingo and the Royal Opera House

Cristina Franchi, The Royal Opera House

PaperBack (02 May 2006)

Placido Domingo, the greatest tenor of our time, is the subject of the first instalment of the Royal Opera House Heritage Series, which focuses on the special relationship he has enjoyed with the Company and with the Royal Opera House since his debut there in 1971.

His mastery of the Italian and French dramatic tenor repertory has not stopped him finding fresh challenges, notably as Heldentenor in Wagner and as an orchestral conductor. Over the years his collaborators have included the conductors Carlos Kleiber, Sir Georg Solti and Colin Davis, the singers Montserrat Caballe, Kiri Te Kanawa and Thomas Allen, and the directors John Schlesinger and Franco Zeffirelli.

The book shows Domingo in rehearsal as well as in performance and includes pictures lent by the Domingo family.
