Placido Domingo

During next season, LA Opera will celebrate Placido Domingo’s 50 years in Los Angeles. Domingo, the house’s General Director said: « Many of the world’s most gifted and most important artists converge in Los Angeles to bring the magic of opera to our community. » Domingo will sing the title role of Nabucco and conduct performances of The Pearl Fishers during the season.

On November 17, 1967, a young singer on tour with the New York City Opera took to the stage of the new Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In the subsequent five decades, Placido Domingo has made a profound impact on the cultural life of Los Angeles—as a singer, conductor and champion of the arts. Fifty years to the day since that remarkable debut, Placido Domingo headlines a gala concert, joined by a legion of special guest artists and James Conlon conducting the LA Opera Orchestra, in a musical celebration of Domingo’s incomparable artistic legacy.
