Plácido Domingo, the world-renowned Grammy Award winning opera singer, is set to perform in Boston for the first time in ten years. He will be accompanied by two sopranos, Micaëla Oeste and Camila Titinger. The program will be conducted by Eugene Kohn.
“Plácido Domingo has chosen a varied program that should be a treat for opera lovers, and at the same time a joyful evening, even for those who have never been to an opera,” said Eugene Kohn. “Following some highly accessible and tuneful operatic selections will be Operetta numbers, favorite Broadway tunes, the Spanish ‘Zarzuela’ style, and beloved Latin favorites as well. Something for everyone!”
The orchestra will feature a hand-picked group of talented young musicians from the area. They have been named the DOMINGO FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA.
Known as ‘The King of Opera,’ Plácido Domingo is recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera. The legendary tenor has performed all over the world with enormous success both as a solo artist, conductor and as a member of The Three Tenors with José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti. His recordings have earned him twelve Grammy Awards, including three Latin Grammys, and won two Emmy Awards. In addition to three feature opera films—Carmen, La Traviata and Otello—he voiced the role of Monte in Beverly Hills Chihuahua and played himself on The Simpsons, and his telecast of Tosca from Rome was seen by more than one billion people in 117 countries.
