Placido Domingo vs. Leo Nucci

I always hate comparing but I wanted to know what you guys think of these Nabucco performances from these two veteran artists with the great Liudmyla Monastyrska?

  1. Nucci is absolutely boring compared to the passionate Domingo! Who would have thought that?! ;)

  2. 100% Domingo apporte une émotion extraordinaire même si le timbre est moins sombre que Nucci, (moins baryton diraient les puristes !!) Mais son timbre est toujours aussi beau !! Quel impact sur le public dont j'étais !!!

  4. Domingo's personality and charisma on stage is and will be always outstanding: that's why he wins the contest! As for voice, singing and baritone timbre ... well... then you should compare both to Bruson who has the actual baritone color. Nucci is too light for Nabucco and Domingo ..he's wonderful, but still a tenor.... and... unfortunately they both are too old to vocally sustain properly this heavy role.

  5. Leo is enough good in this role even in this abstract production. But when you listen to Placido even only in this scene your soul and heart is dismembered. This singer is unique because nobody can't penetrate in your soul so deeply. When you see his face, his eyes you understand that in front you real Nabucco. I don't care that he's not baritone. He's Nabucco and this's most important!!!

  6. To be honest....I don't like making comparisons between different singers/artists in the same role....BUT...this one goes 100% to Plácido Domingo whose singing is absolutely amazing and whose stage presence and charisma is unbeatable....poor Leo Nucci!

  7. Leo Nucci is very good, as he always was, not only in this role. But nobody compares to Placido! He is from another, much better world!

  9. Leo Nucci is a very good Verdi singer.Excellent control of fiato and baryton tone.Plácido Domingo has less breath control and tenor tone but he wins because his words an his frassegio are absolutely wonderful and move the public.
    Have a good day from Barcelona.
