Domingo n'est pas seulement un ténor à la voix prodigieuse, c'est surtout un acteur né, doué de subtilité qui lui permet d'aborder chaque personnage avec un souci expressif d'une rare séduction . . . Outre son sens du texte, son dramatisme linguistique, Domingo est capable d'aigus ardent et métalliques d'une tenue impeccable . . . Le tour d'horizon est dans sa diversité très fidèle à l'énergie dramatique du ténor mythique, diseur, tragédien, d'une exceptionnelle vérité vocale.
