Plácido Domingo is a world-renowned, multifaceted artist, recognized not only as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera but also as a respected conductor. Domingo’s vocal repertoire encompasses 140 stage roles, a number unmatched by any other celebrated tenor in history. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets, and crossover discs have earned him eleven Grammy Awards and two Latin Grammy Awards, as well as two Emmy Awards for the television film Homage to Seville and for the Met’s “Silver Gala” program. He was the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year in 2010. He celebrated his 70th birthday in January 2011, but his gifts and energy remain undiminished. Newsweek and other international publications have fittingly described Plácido Domingo as “the King of Opera,” “a true renaissance man in music,” and “the greatest operatic artist of modern times.”
