Plácido Domingo (Greg Gorman)

Plácido Domingo

Plácido Domingo is a world-renowned, multifaceted artist. He is recognized as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera, yet he is also a respected conductor and a major force as an opera administrator, in his role as General Director of Washington National Opera and Los Angeles Opera. As a singer, Domingo's repertoire encompasses 130 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 include Deutsche Grammophon's anthology of the complete Verdi arias for tenor and EMI's albums of Wagnerian roles that he has not sung on stage: Siegfried in both Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, and Tristan in a complete recording of Tristan und Isolde. His extensive work in the recording studio has earned him eleven Grammy Awards, two of which are in the newly established Latin Grammy Awards, and he has made more than fifty music videos.
