Singing opposite one another in leading romantic roles, Pérez and Costello consistently captivate opera house audiences with their vocal compatibility and unique rapport. In La bohème, the Los Angeles Times declared: “Pérez and Costello possess full-bodied voices and enjoy letting them bloom with Italianate leisure.” In La traviata, “there could not have been a more convincing pair of lovers” (Cincinnati Inquirer), and in excerpts from Donizetti’s L’elisir d’amore. Love Duets features the couple in selections from all three operas, as well from Rigoletto, Faust, Manon, L’amico Fritz, and Broadway shows Carousel, Guys and Dolls, Kismet, and West Side Story (see full track listing below). Interspersed with footage from the London recording sessions, Pérez and Costello discuss their first recording as exclusive Warner Classics artists
