| Genius.Pure genius.
So seldom does everything come to-gether so perfectly. Verdi's masterpiece. Zeferelli's genius. Domingo's voice and those of a superb cast. I had just seen an excellent stage production of Otello last week and pulled out this tape to watch with a friend and again savour this wonderful opera. Nobody should have such sublime pleasure twice in one week. Powerful, Wonderful, Awesome. Magnificent. Why why why do people listen to rock and to rap when this music is available? A raptuous ten!
