Plácido Domingo, the leading Otello of his generation, gives an intensely emotional performance as the great warrior destroyed by jealousy in this broadcast of Verdi's towering Shakespeare adaptation. Aprile Millo is his wife, Desdemona, the innocent woman at the center of the web of deceit spun by the villainous Iago--sung by James Morris, who celebrates 25 years at the Met with this performance.

Star tenor Plácido Domingo brings romantic ardor and stylish vocalism to the role of Don José, the honest soldier lured to his doom by the free-spirited gypsy of the title, sung by Maria Ewing. Catherine Malfitano is Micaela, the faithful girl from Don José's old life who comes to realize she is unable to save him, and Michael Devlin sings Escamillo, the swaggering bullfighter and Don José's rival for Carmen's affections. James Levine leads the Met's musical forces

One of Verdi's most popular operas receives a blazingly dramatic performance by a sensational cast: Montserrat Caballé is Leonora, the young noblewoman caught between two feuding archenemies: her beloved, the troubadour and rebel leader Manrico (Plácido Domingo), and the aristocratic, villainous Count di Luna (Robert Merrill). Fiorenza Cossotto is Azucena, the passionate gypsy whose actions, years before, set the dramatic events in motion

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

91 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Les contes d'Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach( )

100 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plácido Domingo has left his indelible stamp on scores of roles during his remarkable career--but his performance of the romantic poet Hoffmann is one of his greatest achievements. It's a fiendishly daunting role--high, heroic, and long. But Domingo's honeyed, sumptuous tenor makes it sound easy. Carol Vaness portrays all four of the women who break Hoffmann's heart, and Alan Held is his eternal nemesis. James Levine underscores Offenbach's marvelous combination of Gallic sparkle and dark German romanticism
La forza del destino by Giuseppe Verdi( Recording )

84 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( )

80 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plácido Domingo (Samson) and Denyce Graves (Dalila) give a searing demonstration of "onstage chemistry." Certainly no one could possibly doubt that this Samson and Dalila were fated to be together, regardless of all the obstacles put in their way. Graves's sultry, come-hither voice perfectly complements Domingo's honeyed tenor. With Sergei Leiferkus's authoritative High Priest
