Just in: Placido Domingo cancels Met to have gallbladder removed

The Spanish musician went to hospital Tuesday night after experiencing extreme pain and vomiting after conducting Tosca in rehearsal. He will have his gallbladder removed next Tuesday and will miss the first four Toscas, the Met says.

It’s a routine keyhole operation, performed under general anaesthetic. Domingo, 74 may required prolonged rest.

We send him good wishes for a swift recovery.
