These highlights from three now-legendary concerts feature an impressive lineup of Met stars in selections from Handel to Puccini: Tatiana Troyanos and Plácido Domingo; Leontyne Price and Marilyn Horne; and Plácido Domingo and Sherrill Milnes. The program includes repertoire they never sang at the Met as well as excerpts from roles that helped define their careers. Accompanied by the great James Levine and the Met Orchestra, these five artists, all at the top of their form, give ample evidence of why they defined an era at the Met and are among the truly great singers in the history of the company.
