Domingo's in Japan despite new shocks … but will the Met go?

Placido Domingo has made good his pledge to return to Japan as soon as viable. He was singing in Tokyo this weekend with a new partner, Virginia Tola.

But local reports say the Metropolitan Opera is refusing to confirm whether it will fulfil a Japan tour in June. Understandable amid aftershocks – another one struck today – and general devastation, but a solidarity gesture would not come amiss.
Visits by Domingo and Zubin Mehta are said to be invaluable to the national morale.

The Vienna State Opera has announced that it will donateto Japan relief all proceeds from a concert of Mahler’s 9th symphony on the centenary of his death, May 18, 2011
