Scraping both barrels: Domingo shares opening night with Woody Allenmain
It’s like one of those Waiting for God nights at Los Angeles Opera.
Woody Allen opens the 2015-16 with a revival of his best-forgotten 2008 production of Gianni Schicchi. Placido Domingo, LA Opera’s general director, will sing the baritone title role. In the second half Domingo, a former tenor, will conduct a revival of Zeffirelli’s Pagliacci production.
