Romantic and Timeless
Tenor great Placido Domingo pays tribute to the Spanish coplas of his youth. Think of it as a Buena Vista Social Club-moment in the hands of an opera great! Perfect on a warm summer's night with some tapas, paella, and many glasses of sangria. Throw open the windows, dream of the passionate Spain of lore, grab your love, look into her ojos verdes, and shimmy and stroll...the Maestro takes us there!
