Plácido Domingo's Operalia winners concert, seen at the Royal Opera House in July, is to be shown on BBC4 tomorrow night (Friday 21 December) at 7.30.
The 90 minute broadcast features Nina Stemme, Joyce Di Donato, Joseph Calleja, Rolando Villazon, Stefan Pop, Julia Novikova and Sonya Yoncheva alongside El Plácido.
If you can't wait:
As the concert lasted about 2 and a half hours, about an hour has been cut out in its journey to the small screen. It will be interesting to see which contributions have been left on the cutting room floor. Does anyone know if the complete concert is to be released on DVD, or if we will only get the chance to see this heavily expurgated version?

Well let's put it this way. He's a damn sight more a baritone than he is 71.
Did anyone else notice Klueless Katie Derham's introduction of Joyce DiDonato, the greatest blah blah singing the wonderful blah blah "Tanti Affetti" from La donna del lago. By Donizetti.
Poor daft tart.
