The music in this opera is very, very beautiful. Domingo is in fine voice as are the women. However, Domingo is too fat even in 1981 to wear tight fitting pants or for me to enjoy watching him playing such a romantic hero falling all over three women. Also the singers were sweating buckets and glistening like they were in a sauna so the close-ups were a little too close. I'd like this on my mp3 but not to watch.
This production is a treat. It is well designed and well performed. Domingo, Serra, Baltsa, Cotrubas, et al offer, at the very least, engaging performances. I particularly enjoyed Serra in the "Doll Song."
