Plácido Domingo

Arias and duets from Verdi’s most famous operas

Description Program Artists

In contrast to the German composer Richard Wagner, the Italian Giuseppe Verdi cherished the aria throughout his life. Spanish singer Plácido Domingo can look back on long experience with both composers – as both a singer and conductor. Having been known for decades as one of the world’s leading tenors, with over 130 roles and 21 million recordings sold, Domingo is now being celebrated internationally as a baritone as well – most recently at Milan’s La Scala, where he received a full half hour of applause. The season before last, Festspielhaus audiences experienced him in Verdi’s opera Simon Boccanegra. Now he is bringing along three other leading singer personalities to pay tribute to Verdi’s music in a grand and festive gala.
