PLÁCIDO DOMINGO TO PERFORM IN ESTONIA FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME IN HIS CAREER. THE GREAT TENOR IN TALLINN!
Plácido Domingo will perform on February 19, 2019 at Saku Arena.
The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra to share the stage with the great tenor.
Plácido Domingo‘s show normally includes operatic arias & duets, since he is known as an opera singer first and foremost, followed by highlights from Viennese Operetas, Broadway Classics and Zarzuela jewels; Zarzuela being the Spanish repertoire which his parents used to sing. It is a very versatile program filled with highlights of most of the genres that he has sang throughout his career. And he will close the concert with some of his signature fire work numbers.
Plácido Domingo is a world-renowned, multifaceted artist. Plácido Domingo has been described in the international press as “the King of Opera,” “a true renaissance man in music” and “the greatest operatic artist of modern times.” Recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera, he is also a conductor and a major force as an opera administrator in his role as Eli and Edythe Broad General Director of Los Angeles Opera.
His repertoire now encompasses 148 roles, a number unmatched by any other major singer in history, with more than 3900 career performances. In singing the part of Miller in Luisa Miller at the Metropolitan Opera during the 2017-18 season, he is adding the 149th role to his repertoire. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets, and crossover discs have earned him twelve Grammy Awards, including three Latin Grammys, and he has made more than fifty music videos 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 the opera’s authentic settings in Rome was seen by more than one billion people in 117 countries. He subsequently took the title role in a 2010 live telecast of Rigoletto from Mantua, Italy, the city in which the opera’s story takes place. In 1990, he and his colleagues José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti formed the Three Tenors; they subsequently performed with enormous success all over the world and attracted millions of new fans to opera.
Domingo has conducted more than 500 opera performances and symphonic concerts with the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera Covent Garden, the Vienna Staatsoper, Los Angeles Opera, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, the National Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic. During the summer of 2018, he makes his Bayreuth Festival conducting debut with Die Walküre.
In 1993, he founded the international voice competition Operalia, which is still held annually. He has received honorary doctorates from Oxford University and New York University for his lifelong commitment and contribution to music and the arts. He made his first stage appearances in a leading baritone role in 2009, performing the title role of Simon Boccanegra in Berlin. Since then, he has added several other Verdi baritone roles to his repertoire, with appearances in Rigoletto, I Due Foscari, La Traviata, Nabucco, Giovanna d’Arco, Il Trovatore, Macbeth , Ernani and Don Carlo.
