A rising opera stars life is as turbulent as the on-stage roles he plays in this emotion-swept musical drama based on a James M. Cain novel and filmed almost entirely in Mexico. As the young vocalist who emerges from the obscurity of the vineyards, MarioLanza impressively hoists the lead role onto his wide shoulders. In a dazzlingly display of the power that made him a sensation of the musical screen, the renowned tenor sings Ave Maria, excerpts from La Boheme, Don Giovanni, Otello and Il Trovatore, plus other selections from a long songlist. Bravo, Mario! **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
