At last, a documentary worthy of this extraordinary artist. A brief introduction leads into a film of an hour and twenty minutes during which Domingo speaks for himself in words and music without any of the more usual filtering through an interviewer. The performances of the roles he discusses, excerpts from which are included in generous measure, have been chosen by him. They are taken from his Italian, French and German repertoire and represent the middle period of his unique singing career, ranging from Carmen (Vienna, 1978) to Otello (London, 1992). Links from role to role are provided in a clear and unobtrusive off-screen commentary by the film's director, with occasional and pertinent additional observations from Zubin Mehta. The film is beautifully structured and seamlessly weaves the artist's thoughts on the roles, the music, the drama and colleagues past and present with, among other things, reflections on his life to date, his views on religion and politics, and most interestingly and perhaps importantly on an artist's duty.
Anyone with an interest in understanding something of what makes this great man tick, or with an interest in acquiring a better understanding of what is required of a great artist should invest in this DVD. It should be a mandatory purchase for all aspiring opera singers!
Two small points with regard to dates mentioned in the commentary, both at Covent Garden (which in no way detract from the value of the film) - the Schlesinger production of Hoffman was new in 1980 (not '82) and the Moshinsky production of Otello was new in 1987 (not '83).

tHIS DVD IS A MUST FOR EVERY FAN OF DOMINGO. iT'S A FANTASTIC SELECTION MADE FOR DOMINGO HIMSELF OF HIS FAVORITES ROLES. HE SPEAKS ABOUT THEM, AND AFTER WE CAN SEE HIM SINGING...YOU CAN FEEL WHAT HE FEELS WHEN HE SPEAKS ABOUT HIS ROLES, HE IS AS EXPRESIVE SPEAKING AS SINGING OR ACTING...IT'S FANTASTIC. JUST ONE PROBLEM: IT HAS'NT SUBTITLES IN SPANISH, BUT IT'S VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND. I RECOMMEND WARMLY

This is fine. There may have been better tenors in the twentieth century, though very few, but as a tenor-actor, Domingo is peerless. This DVD shows why. Not all of the excerpts are in highest of fi but this is a worthwhile release - and an excellent taster for someone not acquainted with the man's extraordinary qualities. Interestingly, one of the most distinctive is his humility.
