From the singer:

August 1, 2022 Marta and I are celebrating 60 years of marriage today. We give infinite thanks to God for granting us this huge privilege. 1/8/1962.


  • Amos says:

    Overlooking countless accusations of acts of infidelity alone makes her a candidate for sainthood.

    • Lothario Hunter says:

      As florid and prosperous as Placido’s marriage can be, and we are certain it is, and we have no reason to doubt it. It surely isn’t as thriving as the union of his comrade in arms Muti, who has set the absolute gold standard for marriages in classical music, perhaps rivaled only by Pavarotti.

      Placido cannot rely on angels visiting him and giving him marriage counseling, like Muti on Cherubini’s tours, and cannot count on the support of an entire institution devoted to his wife as much as to the Maestro himself, like the CSO and their president, Jeff Alexander, a sincere paladin of the Maestro’s wife. In spite of weather and distance, Muti’s marriage blooms in Chicago like an exotic flower in a rain forest, at the sound of a sweet bolero … 😀

      Congratulations Senor Domingo, even a silver medal in this field is a massive achievement, when the gold goes to the Maestro of true-hearted husbands!

    • anon singer says:

      She’s far from a saint. She has always been abusive to young female singers.

    • Ludwig's Van says:

      Or foolhood?

    • Maria says:

      Accusations! One person’s view infidelity is another persons sign of a affection, particularly if from
      a Latin background. Wish Placido many more happy years of marriage.

  • Kaf says:

    Codependency rather than God made for 60 years of cohabitation.

  • IntBaritone says:

    Amazing how anonymous people on the internet think they have the right to judge the reality of another person’s marriage.

    Love or hate Domingo as you wish. However, the validity of the love within his marriage is between him and Marta alone.

    But, you know, gotta make sure you mock other people’s lives to make you feel better about your own existence, I guess… (not a good look)

    • Kaf says:

      “is between him and Marta alone”

      Not quite “alone”, since Domingo was the one who brought God into the conversation.

      We have every right to react to the gratuitous invocation of the Almighty, thou shalt not take the Lord’s name in vain, especially when adultery is a mortal sin.

    • Henry williams says:

      He has done very well. I know of marriages
      That have lasted 6 months. I wonder who gets
      Custody of the wedding cake.

  • Dennis says:

    One of the biggest hound dogs at the Met was the word.No real reason to dispute all the women who are believable imo when one understands the ego, arrogance and self importance of an artist of that level who is above it all in his mindset! Must be an excellent actor ,came across as “molto simpatico ” on many occasions when truly a wolf in sheep’s clothing! To me his arrogance and self centered nature comes through with him singing the last 20 years WELL BEYOND his prime.

    • Dolores veloz says:

      I’m a women and I hardly believe those accusations…always respected Mr.Dominguez for his voice and talent.

      • Minedga. I. Archilla-McNamee says:

        “Cuando El rio suena…”! Too many victims came forward!! And we are talking about serious women!!

  • Ted says:

    Thank goodness for anonymous nobodies who can always be relied on for their profound insights into other people’s relationships.
    The fact that they actually know sweet F.A. never seems to blunt their confidence.

  • Anon says:

    I am flabbergasted how righteous these critics can be. They ‘must be perfect’
    To Domingo & wife Marta, CONGRATULATIONS on this momentous milestone❣️

  • Boris Godunov says:

    Pretty ironic now that we have him on tape ordering up human sex trafficking victims for his use at hotels, directly from a notorious criminal organization. Domingo is a sleazeball and should be in jail.
