Placido Domingo

domingodebutFifty years ago, on September 28, 1968, Plácido Domingo made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur. The company’s 2018–19 season marks the golden anniversary of his debut and in honour of this momentous occasion, Met Opera Radio looks back at some of the tenor’s most unforgettable performances.  With a repertoire spanning more than 50 roles — including Cavaradossi in Tosca, Siegmund in Die Walküre and the towering title role of Otello — Domingo is one of the most beloved artists in opera history.  This five-day celebration will include classics such as Manon Lescaut and Les Contes d’Hoffmann, as well as Domingo’s appearance in the baritone role of Simon Boccanegra.  {]
