EMI Classics celebrates Plácido Domingo’s illustrious 50 years on stage with this exciting 4-CD set, which includes extension liner notes, artist testimonials, and a career time-line illustrated with rare production and photo shoot images. Beautifully packaged in a double-tall hardcover book, each CD is programmed thematically to highlight the multiple facets of Domingo’s career with individual discs dedicated Heroic Arias, Romantic Arias, Latin Songs, and The Great Duets.
A world-renowned artist, Plácido Domingo, now in his late sixties, is recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera. His repertoire encompasses 130 stage roles – a number unmatched by any other celebrated tenor in history. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets, and crossover discs include recordings of works for Wagnerian roles that Domingo has never sung on stage, including Siegfried in both Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, and Tristan in a complete recording of Tristan und Isolde.
