    Great Performances [#3609H] Placido Domingo: My Favorite Roles Placido Domingo is not only one of the most popular and celebrated tenors of his generation, but his international career has also led him to his dual directorships of the Washington National Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. In this performance documentary, Domingo looks back and reflects on his favorite roles from opera houses around the world. The story of Domingo's roots in Spain is interwoven with his famous performance as Don Jose in "Carmen" at the Vienna Staatsoper. His memories about his childhood in Mexico inform his acclaimed performance of "El Gato Montes" from the LA Opera. We see him in some of his earliest roles singing "cielo e mar" from "Gioconda" in Madrid, as well as his debut in "Ernani" at Milan's La Scala. Other highlights: from the Metropolitan Opera, his striking performance in Verdi's "Luisa Miller;" excerpts from the Emmy-winning "Tosca" from Rome; and Domingo's star turns in "Simon Boccanegra," "Les Contes D'Hoffmann," "Samson et Dalilah," "I Pagliacci" in Zefirelli's film (La Scala) and his enduring signature role in Verdi's "Otello." duration 1:48:16   STEREO TVG

All is going along fine until Telly crashes the bulldozer into a block tower, and some of the blocks hit the doll. Baby Bear says it's "too rough" and pretends that Curly might get upset. They switch to playing with action figures, and Baby Bear offers his doll to be Super Baby, but that gets a little rough too. Telly suggests a game of catch, and once again, Telly gets a little rough. This time, though, Baby Bear slips and says that it is his doll. He runs off embarrassed, and Gordon finds him. Baby Bear explains to Gordon that he doesn't want Telly to know how much he loves his doll, since dolls are for girls. Gordon points out that he is wearing a pink shirt, and there is no reason things have to be just for girls, or just for boys. He explains that Baby Bear should not be embarrassed - playing with dolls is great practice for when he grows up and becomes a daddy. Baby Bear decides to tell Telly the truth, and finds Telly playing with the doll. Telly says how great Baby Bear's doll is and how much fun he is having, and they happily feed and burp the baby doll together. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
