Vesa Siren, chief critic of Helsingin Sanomat, has sent us a short video interview clip with Domingo after he sang in St Petersburg last month.
Vesa asked him why he carries on singing at 75.
Placido’s reply: ‘The big passion that I have. I love so much to have the contact with the public, with the music that I have loved all my life, so I carry on singing.’
He goes on to tell Vesa that he’s learning a role in Verdi’s Luisa Miller.
