    Amazing performance by Domingo

    This DVD promises to be incredible given that it is Verdi, with Placido Domingo in the lead role, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, and performed at Teatro Alla Scala. And this performance delivers. The sets are wonderfully bare and powerful at the same time, the orchestra sounds fantastic (this group *always* does) under Mr. Barenboim’s baton, Mr. Domingo shows that his voice is still incredible along with his acting skills, and the Chorus of the Teatro Alla Scala does wonderful work bringing the incredible choral components of Verdi’s opera to life. Ah yes, this is fine opera, and I continually found myself envious of those that got to see it performed live in that magnificent venue.

    The one negative that took me by surprise had to do with the camera angles and continual cutting in from close-up to pulled-back view in the later portions of the 2nd act. This choppiness was totally unnecessary and detracted from the production on video as a whole.

    That being said, this is a remarkable performance and is certainly a worthwhile addition to this opera lovers collection.
