My operatic roles by Plácido Domingo( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was produced for Placido Domingo's 60th birthday and the 40th anniversary of his debut in a major role (Alfredo in La Traviata in 1961). It is a portrait of the artist in his own words, through his own portrayals of the various operatic heroes he has so grippingly and hauntingly brought to life over the years. The series of interviews took place all over the world over several years, from Seville to New York to Vienna and home in Acapulco. They trace his journey into each of his 62 major roles for the benefit of present and future singers, to single out the specific vocal aspects in each role that he considers significant. - Author's note
