Arthaus have here gathered together a set of performances from their Wiener Staatsoper Live series using Plácido Domingo as their unifying link. These performances are fantastic in their own way but while the great tenor is a fundamental part in the success of each, the conductors are often more of a reason to acquire them.
So while Domingo may be the unifying force for these three performances, he is in every case only one aspect of a highly successful performance. Arthaus has done us a favour by releasing these three DVDs together as they provide a very affordable way of obtaining three highly collectable performances. There are plenty of great things here and…you can easily afford to treat yourself.
