Catalogue Number: 05K029
Label: Opus Arte
Reference: OA 1006 D
Description: We offer this not because it's rare Handel (there are four other CD releases and one other DVD) but because, in the only major role Handel wrote for tenor, the 67-year-old Domingo not only sounds as good as he did 20-30 years ago, he also immediately gets into the proper Handelian style and carries the work all the way through. Post-modern staging but who cares? 3 DVDs. Plácido Domingo (tenor), Monica Bacelli, Jennifer Holloway (mezzos), Ingela Bohlin (soprano), Sara Mingardo (contralto), Luigi De Donato (bass), Madrid Symphony Orchestra; Paul McCreesh. 16:9 anamorphic widescreen. 2.0 PCM stereo or 5.1 DTS surround. NTSC region 0. 241 min.
