Conducting Manon Lescaut in Moscow.

Say hi to Edward Snowden.


  • Henry williams says:

    All his wealth he should retire. Make room for the next genaration.

    • Adriana says:

      Nobody needs your stupid advises. Retire yourself if you want it so much.

      Why do all losers like you think they can advise all these bull shit to Domingo and other great people?

      Shut up please.

      • mary says:

        Hi “Adriana” or whatever multiple personality names you will be using here, glad to see Domingo’s one and only crazed fan(atic) back at it again.

        • Bruce says:

          On the other hand, I do enjoy her/their creative use of the definite article with the term “bull shit” (separate words).

        • Adriana says:

          You will be surprised, but Domingo has lots of fans around the world. His performances in Verona, Vienna, Florence were completely sold out. The same situation is in Moscow.
          One crazy fanatic can’t buy all the tickets, dear.

      • Henry williams says:

        Iam not a loser i have a mclaren sports car. The good looks. and the girls.
        Also a great record collection

        • Adriana says:

          Henry williams,
          If you have a very expensive car and many beautifull girls, why do you waste your time posting your dirty comments about Domingo?
          You real life must be much more interesting.
          Usually losers post dirty comments about successfull people.

      • Novagerio says:

        Adriana: Because we are the audience. It’s that simple.
        Some of us have admired Domingo for more than 40 years.
        We’ve paid big money to see and hear him at the height of his powers (as a tenor – the reason he’s going to be in all encyclopaedias), and the audience is the reason for him being both wealthy and influential. Don’t you get it?

        However, now he’s doing himself a huge disfavour. He should have retired with integrity and grace as a Grand Signeur, propably already around 2001, when he was 60 (provided he really is born in 1941!), instead of losing more and more credibility day by day, by doing things in an outmost mediocre way – mostly for the love of money.

    • Sue Sonata Form says:

      I agree with this and I can assure the maestro there are many wonderful aspects to retirements, such as learning opportunities, new adventures and far less stress. There’s the health depredations, but you can’t have everything….

  • Gustavo says:

    Mais non!

  • mary says:

    looking at the photo, I’ve never seen a score that’s made up of a pile of loose sheets of paper!

  • Boris says:

    His singing, sublime. His conducting, inept. His ethics, abominable

  • The View from America says:

    How lovely.

  • Nik says:

    Honi soit qui mal y pense

  • Bruce says:

    Where’s Domingo?

    Who cares?

  • Fleurov says:

    You always know where to console your nostalgia – in
    @Bolshoi, Russians like old stars. Waiting for Levine

  • Nastya says:

    I’m happy that theaters in my countries are open.
    Welcome, Maestro Domingo! We enjoyed performance so much!

  • George says:

    What exactly is the news here? Domingo is conducting Manon Lescaut in Moscow. Two weeks ago he sang Nabucco in Florence. His calendar is on his website.

  • Papageno says:

    Looks like PD has gone to the dark side.

  • Roberto Martinez says:

    When was Placido Domingo charged, what were the charges?
    What was he found guilty of?
    Has he been sued civilly?
    I hear that a civil trial does not place as heavy a burden of proof on the accusers.
    Perhaps, any burden is to heavy?

    • Adriana says:

      There are just non-proof statements of several failed opera singers. Just their words and still no any proof.

      These women dont go to police or court. There is no any lawsuite on Domingo case at any country. Domingo accusers are ready to lie at media, but they are not ready to lia at court.

      This is a well-paid and well-fabricated campaign to get Domingo position at LA Opera.
