For Verdi fans, this performance of his dark, magnificent opera is something of a touchstone. James Levine knows just how to bring all the elements in this sprawling canvas together in one gripping picture. The legendary Leontyne Price is spectacular as Leonora, desperately in love with Alvaro (Plácido Domingo at his most incandescent), even after fate wrenches them apart. Cornell MacNeil is Don Carlo, Leonora's vengeful brother, and Martti Talvela is the compassionate Padre Guardiano

This performance features the legendary African-American contralto Marian Anderson in her history-making Met debut role of Ulrica, the fortune-teller. At first her predictions are all good news. But who would believe the best friend of the king would actually murder him? Absurd. That's what the king (Jan Peerce) thinks. But he loves Amelia (Zinka Milanov), the wife of his friend Renato (Robert Merrill). And when Renato discovers them together, he joins the plot against the king. This is Verdian passion at its best

Ileana Cotrubas is stunning as Violetta, the glamorous courtesan who gives up everything for love. Her portrayal is filled with countless little touches that make even the most familiar role seem totally new, and audiences suffered with her plight, and wept at her death. Plácido Domingo's golden, seductive voice would make any woman want to run away with him, and Cornell MacNeil is his stern but understanding father. James Levine's nuanced conducting is sublime

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
