Ranked among the top three tenors in the world, Plácido Domingo made his operatic debut as Alfredo in “La Traviata” in 1961 in Mexico. Since then, he has performed throughout the world with opera greats Lily Pons, Joan Sutherland and Luciano Pavarotti. In 1987, he had the honor of singing “Otello” at the 100th anniversary performance at La Scala. One year later, on New Year’s Eve, Domingo appeared as a soloist with Zubin Mehta and the New York Philharmonic in a televised live concert before millions. Throughout his illustrious career he has received two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, made over 70 recordings of 55 different operas and performed over 1,400 times.
