4.4 out of 5 stars
Placido Domingo: My Greatest Roles - The Documentary
Format: DVD|Change
Price:$24.99+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on September 1, 2014
A 5 star documentary but a 3 star for the price to own it. A fitting example of a high quality documentary one might find on PBS or the BBC but I wouldn't normally pay $15.47 to own a copy of a hour long,commercial-free TV documentary if it weren't for my fascination with the person and the subject. A short biography of his life with an in-depth interview of the Maestro reflecting back on memorable roles in his career. He is a warm and generous guest when he has the time to grant an interview. The archival footage was well done and for those who were unfamiliar with the depth and breath of the contribution he has made to his craft, this is a nice introduction but by no means anywhere near comprehensive.

Superb album of Domingo singing his greatest roles, and there were many. GET IT, as you'll love the singing.

Got this for my mom for her birthday and she loves it! It arrived a day ahead of the estimated day so I would say we were all happy!

Alas, this was a great disappointment. The documentary dates form 2009 and it is clear that Mr. Domingo's narrative was filmed around that time. However, all of the clips are from decades earlier--one has to guess exactly since none are dated. Therefore, no development of his acting, singing or, for that matter, looks, are provided. His colleagues in the performances are not named--so one has to know that it is Kire te Kanawa or whoever else. An equally large negative surprise was the fact that none of the clips are from performances at the NY Metropolitan Opera. Is this due to copyrights, the unwillingness of the documentary makers to pay royalties, or something else?

There are plenty of documentaries out there regarding Placido's contemporaries that move, educate and uplift. This one on Placido, unfortunately, is not one of them---by a long shot. Wish I could get my money back.
