Placido Domingo (tenor)


Placido Domingo (tenor)


The perfect compilation for opera fans, featuring the greatest hits of Plácido Domingo. 50 tracks displaying Domingo’s unrivalled versatility, including excerpts from famous operas such as Carmen, Aida, Turandot and Tosca as well as first-rate examples of popular songs and Latin American tunes.

Plácido Domingo is truly one of a kind. He is a tireless artistic champion who never stands still. As well as being a singer he is also an artistic director and a conductor, he has been involved in much humanitarian work and he founded Operalia, a competition to find new opera stars. He has had an immensely successful operatic career not only as a tenor, but in later years as a baritone. His recordings of popular and Latin songs have allowed him to reach even larger and equally adoring audiences.

Domingo has not only dominated the opera world, singing 146 roles in major opera houses around the world, but has firmly crossed into the mainstream cultural consciousness appearing on The Simpsons, Sesame Street, Seinfeld and, of course, as one of 'The Three Tenors' to an audience of billions.
