Tosca - Film, 1976 - Domingo, Milnes, Kabaivanska
In this classic production of Tosca, Placido Domingo is joined by dramatically gifted Bulgarian soprano Raina Kabaivanska. The opera's celebrated love triangle is completed by the imposing American baritone Sherrill Milnes. Also includes a rare scene of Domingo's young son, Placido Domingo Jr. in the role of the shepherd boy, Pastore. Beautifully shot on location in Rome by Gianfranco de Bosio, it features the very buildings and interiors specified in Puccini's libretto. A treat for the eye as well as the ear.
