World-renowned tenor Plácido Domingo is joined by Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna and a host of other international stars including Susan Graham, in the famously glittering 1996 Gala Concert on the stage of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Asher Fisch conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in a programme of many of the world’s best-loved operatic arias with music by composers including Bizet, Massenet, Gounod, Mozart and Donizetti. Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London on 12th December 1996.

"The central figure of this gala is clearly Domingo. He sings most often and he even takes over as conductor during the Lehár waltz. Furthermore, while he conducts we are treated to a screen montage of some of his great Covent Garden roles. He is a worthy central figure, however, and this disc merely confirms that 1996 still saw him in his very long prime. He throws himself into roles as diverse as Faust, Le Cid and Nemorino with equal ease and convinces as all of them: his voice still has the burnished ring at the top...Everyone on stage is clearly having great fun, and the chances are that you will too."
