A succession of successes
Plácido Domingo continues in Crete his long streak of brilliant performances that has taken him all over the world, with success wherever he goes. With more than 4,000 performances and more than 150 different roles in all languages and at almost 83 years of age (he will be 83 in January) he seems to be in top form. He has already achieved all the records, such as the longest ovation in history (no less than 80 minutes and 101 curtains in Vienna), more than a billion spectators have watched his interpretation of Tosca in 117 countries, he has recorded more than 100 operas and 50 music videos, and won 12 Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards.
She has more than a dozen performances signed until December 2023 and so far this year she has given concerts or performed operas in Muscat (Oman), Tokyo (Japan), Mérida (Mexico), Florence (Italy), Palm Beach (Florida-USA), Budapest (Hungary), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Monte Carlo (Monaco), Monte Carlo (Monaco), Graz (Austria), Baden-Baden (Germany), Tashkent (Uzbekistan), Almaty (Kazakhstan), Envigado (Colombia), San Salvador (El Salvador), London (United Kingdom), Salzburg (Austria), Geneva (Switzerland) and Taormina (Sicily-Italy).
The last of Domingo's many awards, the Artis Suavitas, will be presented on 30 June in Taormina's almost neighbouring archaeological park, the Archaeological Park of Pompeii. "An initiative that aims to combine passion and cultural taste with a strong commitment to the promotion and enhancement of places of great historical and scenic value".
