Domingo - the only one of the Three
Tenors who also conducts - rehearsing andconductingthe 1993 Los Angeles production of Puccini's La Bohème. Working alongside Domingo in his operatic debut is veteran Hollywood director and choreographer Herbert Ross. Domingo carefully guides a young cast through the emotional complexities of their roles, singing every part as he rehearses the orchestra. Ross employs more aggressive tactics.
