Worth the Price 10 Mar 2010
By Vince D - Published on
Verified Purchase
The actual entertainment on this disk is about 35 minutes but it was sure well worth it. Didn't pay much for it and hope that contributions from it's sale continue to support UNESCO. Other than Domingo, Hendricks and Verrett, the participants were not seen nearly enough during their careers and recorded for posterity.Domingo was in excellent voice singing pieces totally suited to his range and timbre. Shirley Verrett put all the passion and musical intelligence she always possessed into these excerpts. Barbara Hendricks was sparkling as she always is. Simon Estes demonstrated why is had the career he enjoyed and how special would have been performances in Otello. The surprise was Wang Yan Yan. This Chinese born soprano performs the Don Carlo piece with style, elegance, and intensity, attributes of only a select few performers. Loren Maazel focused the orchestra on the vocalists creating a most enjoyable atmosphere for the concert. The "special features" are not special and along with the advertisements, serve only a time fillers. Would still purchase this DVD.

An Insult to the Artists and the Consumers 10 Aug 2009
By Prisoner of Planet Moron - Published on
Poor video transfer, poor audio transfer, no subtitles. An ancient tape must have been retrieved from the dustbin to construct this DVD.

The DVD is a disservice to the artists, especially an artist of the stature of Domingo, who presumably volunteered their time and talent to this benefit performance. A large number of quality CDs and DVDs are available to display the talents of Domingo. Don't waste your time on this one.

The "Bonus Features" include clips of even greater antiquity and --- if possible --- even lower quality.

Suitable for landfill only.
