Placido Domingo is one of the most popular and celebrated tenors of his generation; his international career also led him to his dual directorships of the Washington National Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. In this performance documentary, Domingo looks back and reflects on his favorite roles in opera houses around the world. The story of his Spanish roots is interwoven with his famous performance as Don Jose in Carmen at the Vienna Staatsoper. His memories of his childhood in Mexico inform his acclaimed performance of El Gato Montes from the LA Opera. The program includes one of his earliest roles singing "Cielo e mar" from La Gioconda in Madrid, as well as his debut in Ernani at Milan’s La Scala. Other highlights: from the Metropolitan Opera, his striking performance in Verdi’s Luisa Miller; excerpts from the Emmy-winning Tosca from Rome; and Domingo’s star turns in Simon Boccanegra, Les Contes d’Hoffmann, Samson et Dalilah, I Pagliacci, and his enduring signature role in Verdi’s Otello.
