Come Shahrazàd, la figlia bella e astuta del visir, Beniamino Placido racconta a suo modo delle favole moderne, che riprende dal cinema e dalla televisione, dalla storia e dalla letteratura. Se qualcuno chiedesse «a che servono queste storie improbabili e inutili?, bisogna avere la forza di rispondere con cortese fermezza: a niente. Tutt'al più a comprare il tempo. A vivere mille e una notte in più. E meglio. A nient'altro». Accogliendo l'elegante understatement di Placido, potremmo rovesciarlo di segno e affermare che il suo Nautilus ci è utile proprio alla lunga distanza. In fondo ci sono mille e una notte da trascorrere insieme.

Verdi's "La Forza del Destino" is a story of forbidden love, seduction, jealousy, honor and revenge. The opera was composed in 1862 and had its premiere in St. Petersburg. In this recording from 1976 with star cast (Leontyne Price in the role of Donna Leonora, Plácido Domingo as Don Alvaro and Sherrill Milnes as Don Carlo) under the direction of James Levine the beauty and attention to detail Verdi comes out particularly well. The London Symphony Orchestra and the John Alldis Choir provide the perfect musical accompaniment for the ensemble, which includes Fiorenza Cossotto, Bonaldo Giaiotti and Gabriel Bacquier. This recording is considered one of the best of Verdi's La Forza del Destino.

In the words of a survey of nineteenth-century Italian opera, published by the Corriere della sera to mark the turning of the century, Mascagni was "condemned to a masterpiece": after the triumph of Cavalleria rusticana nothing less would do. He lived for another 55 years, and although some of his 14 subsequent operas were immensely successful for a while (he claimed that Iris was better received than Cavalleria, and there was a near-riot of enthusiasm at the premiere of Il piccolo Marat) none was judged by the critics to be the awaited 'masterpiece', and nearly all had fallen from the repertory by the end of his life.

2008 album from the world famous tenor, based upon poems by the late Pope John Paul II. The album is performed with the London Symphony Orchestra and features duets with Andrea Bocelli, Vanessa Williams and Katherine Jenkins. The lyrics are in Italian, English and Spanish. Placido is known for his versatile and strong voice, possessing a ringing and dramatic tone throughout its range. He is considered to be a talented and hard-working musician but is also admired for his acting ability, his musicality and musical intellect, and the number and variety of opera roles that he has mastered.

Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi is the only opera Woody Allen has ever staged. The 2015 version on this release is a revival of Woody Allen’s 2008 production for L.A. Opera, a hilarious parody of classical Italian cinema stereotypes. Features Plácido Domingo in the leading role as Gianni Schicchi.

The CD format for opera on records coincides with (and perhaps encourages) the modern habit in the opera house of running two or more acts together without an interval. Some operas benefit from this, but I don't think Faust is one of them. It strikes a genial bargain. ''I won't waste your time,'' it promises, ''but don't bother to come along if you haven't got a full evening-out to spare.''

Kathleen Battle and Placido Domingo delight the listener from start to finish in this complilation. Most notable are the duets from La Traviata and The Merry Widow. In my experience of soprano/tenor performances, one voice usually is stronger or more powerful than the other, thus disappointing to that listener who is seeking a perfect blending of voices. Ms. Battle and Mr. Domingo achieve that perfect blend on each duet on this CD. Their solo performances are equally outstanding. It is no wonder they are in such demand with audiences in Japan where this CD was recorded live, as well as throughout the world.

L'incertezza del futuro appesa a 7 minuti. Un caleidoscopio di vite diversissime e pulsanti, vite di donne, madri, figlie. Undici caratteri, per una riflessione sulla possibilità concreta di opporre resistenza e di reagire all'incertezza del futuro, tra caos, logica e giustizia. I proprietari di un'azienda tessile italiana cedono la maggioranza della proprietà a una multinazionale. Sembra che non siano previsti licenziamenti, operaie e impiegate possono tirare un sospiro di sollievo.

The Met's first production in more than 60 years is "treated with a keen appreciation for the special requirements of verismo and a practically vanished performing tradition. Scotto has found her ideal role…a great performance… Domingo sang glamorously… Levine's affectionate concern for the music told in every measure… The massive sets by Ezio Frigerio serve the work exquisitely … Piero Faggioni’s graceful direction strikes a perfect balance” (New York Magazine)
