Just in: Placido Domingo pulls out of Tokyo Olympicsmain
The organising committee of next year’s Tokyo Olympics has issued a statement announcing that Placido Domingo has withdrawn from a Tokyo 2020 Nippon Festival performance ahead of the Games.
Domingo was said to have pulled out due to the ‘complexity’ of the concert, which conjoins opera and kabuki performances.
‘After thoughtful consideration I have made the decision not to participate in the kabuki-opera event due to the complexity of the project,’ Domingo was quoted as saying.
No reference was made to his recent difficulties.
