Placido Domingo was already an opera celebrity by the time The Three Tenors captured the imagination of the general public in the 90’s. He will be featured on this Sunday’s “Sunday Night at the Opera” with host Alexa Petrenko. Here’s what she has to say:

“The man proclaimed as the greatest operatic artist of the modern age,  Placido Domingo of “if I rest, I rust” fame, was born on Jan 21, 1941, and is apparently still in his prime.  Over the last half century he has sung a good 4,000 performances of over 150 roles, most recently as a baritone. ‘Singer, conductor, administrator’, says his website.  I say, ‘Force of Nature’.  Sit back and let your hair blow as he sings some of Verdi’s finest baritone arias.”

Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, and Luciano Pavarotti, of The Three Tenors

 

Sunday Night at the Opera airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
