Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Verdi - Don Carlos  (NTSC) [DVD]  (DVD)
I had read a bad review about Lois Quilico's performance and nearly didn't buy it for that reason. Now I'm glad I did, its an absolute must-buy for any collection. Quilico is okay, the trouble is he is being judged by some exremely high benchmarks.
Domingo IS Don Carlos. With Mirella Freni, Bumbry and Ghiaurov, he gives an unforgettable performance of this work of rare and poignant beauty.
Last but not least, congratulations to the costume designers who have done a marvellous job.
I would add that the chorus at the beginning of the opera has, quite correctly, been included. I can't understand why it is omitted in another (otherwise marvellous) recording that I have (a CD with Domingo,Caballe, Milnes, Raimondi and Verrett.)
