"Di quella pira”

PLACIDO DOMINGO PLAYS "MANRICO"
In this production of Il Trovatore, Karajan not only conducts, but was also the stage director, giving this tale of Spanish nobles and gypsies a dark framework against which Verdi’s music was able to shine all the more brightly. This recording features the talents of Bulgarian soprano Raina Kabaivanska as Leonora, a wealth of vocal experience from Fiorenza Cossotto as the gypsy Azucena, Piero Cappuccilli’s strong portrayal of the Count and Plácido Domingo as a truly lyrical troubadour, Manrico.

Available as part of 'Placido Domingo: My Greatest Roles, Volume 2 - Verdi' containing:
