Plácido Domingo continues his incomparable career with a zarzuela program. This headline alone is enough to catch our attention in the case of an eighty-two-year-old singer who has never in his life needed an amplifier (excepting, of course, the "Three Tenors" open-air concerts). With his strong bonds with the Festspielhaus, we are delighted that he is including Baden-Baden in his tour. In our city he has recorded a CD, starred in operas, and appeared as a conductor. Even after switching from tenor to baritone, he has offered thrilling performances, including in Verdi's Simone Boccanegra, and has always been cherished by audiences.
