Plácido Domingo Takes A Bite Out Of The Big Apple For Valentine's Day

"The course of true love never does run smooth, as listeners at the New York Philharmonic’s Valentine’s Day concert were reminded during a lineup of songs about melancholic, suicidal and incestuous love. Alan Gilbert began the event at Avery Fisher Hall, where the stage was decorated with red flowers, by conducting a full-blooded rendition of the Prelude to Act I of Wagner’s Meistersinger." What followed was a full evening of tenor Plácido Domingo celebrating his 70th birthday (Jan. 21) by singing arias and songs by Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Torroba, Lehár , Lara, de León and Bernstein. He shared the stage with 2010 Operalia Competition winner, soprano Sonya Yoncheva. The Spanish tenor will open tonight in Iphigénie en Tauride across the Lincoln Center Plaza at the Metropolitan Opera. [Source]
