schema:reviewBody""Placido Domingo, one of the legendary opera singers of our time, is the subject of this first opera book in the Royal Opera House Heritage Series. Placido Domingo and The Royal Opera focuses on the special relationship Domingo has enjoyed with the Company and with the Royal Opera House since his debut in 1971. Domingo's career has been characterised by the range of his roles and by the honing of his dramatic skills as a performer, although never at the expense of his voice. His extraordinary range as a tenor is illustrated in over 20 roles he has sung with The Royal Opera from the Italian and French repertory, as well as from Wagner and Tchaikovsky." "Domingo has also appeared on the other side of the curtain, making his British conducting debut with The Royal Opera in 1983. Since then he was conducted several works with The Royal Opera and in 2003 he achieved a rare double: singing Caino in four performances of Pagliacci and conducting Dennis O'Neill as Canio is a further three performances." "This book illustrates all aspects of Domingo's work with The Royal Opera: in rehearsal, in performance, on the Big Screen and backstage after galas. It also includes a selection of family photographs lent by the Domingos."--BOOK JACKET."
