Opera singer Placido Domingo is an international phenomenon, and this film tries to capture his limitless talent, energy, and charisma as it follows him from the stage to a football game or from one opera house to a stadium across the world. Whatever role he tackles, he does so with dedication and gusto; whomever he plays on stage, he inhabits the character like few before him. His acting ability combined with a celestial voice and complete devotion to his art have led to Domingo’s great worldwide success. This film re-creates his life from his childhood in Madrid and his family’s move to Mexico during Franco’s reign, to his first steps on stage that led to an international career (including two and a half years in Israel, in the early 1960s). Domingo’s colleagues talk about how unique he is, while he, with a confident smile and sparkle in his eyes, reflects on a career he would be happy to relive again, from the beginning.
