Filmed at the Metropolitan Opera House in 1995, this rendition of Verdi’s “Otello” is beautifully crafted by leading stars Placido Domingo and Renee Fleming. This was the first major success for Fleming at the Met, and as this release illustrates, she tackled the character of Desdemona wonderfully.

In this clip, watch Placido Domingo perform the famous aria, “Dio mi potevi.”

Otello airs for SundayArts September 28, 2008 at noon.
