‘The production at the Teatro Real in Madrid was a top-of the-range version… Vidal is a peach of a role for Domingo: his voice easily commands its baritone range and he dominates the action, convincingly heroic in voice and figure and still able to project a greying virility in the style of Sean Connery. Nancy Herrara as Luisa and Jose Bros as Javier gave fine support.’ The Independent

“…Emilio Sagi's elegant, minimal and warm-hearted staging gives it a full-scale operatic stylishness that is captured vividly for disc… Torroba's score pours enticing melody over traditional dance rhythms… Under Jesús López Cobos it sparkles with woodwind and percussion colour. Nancy Herrera's eloquent mezzo shines in heartfelt duets with both José Bros - a fluent, suave tenor... and... Domingo, who typically paces himself to intensify along with the drama.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2007 ****

The Glory of Spain
This program is a visual and musical hymn of praise to what Andrés Segovia describes as "the pride, strength, and reverence of the Spanish soul." That soul is exhibited through the remarkable music of Spanish composers: Issac Albéniz, Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, and Federico Moreno Torroba; and a gifted group of painters: El Greco, Goya, and Velásquez. Filmed at Madrid's El Prado featuring performances by Andrés Segovia, Victoria de los Angeles and Alicia de Larrocha.
Recorded in 1967
