Placido Domingo

Bahrain National Theater
Free Admission

Opera legend Placido Domingo returns to Bahrain this November for the Bahrain National Theatre’s first anniversary accompanied by the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, conducted by Maestro Eugene Kohn.

Known for the command and versatility of his voice, Domingo cemented his status as one of the most celebrated artists of our time with a repertoire that boasts over 140 stage roles, extensive recordings, and countless awards and honors that include 12 Grammy Awards.  During his career, Domingo has tackled some of the opera world’s most demanding roles: Otello, Siegmund, Rigoletto, and Simon Boccanegra. 

From tenor to baritone, Domingo displays a rare kind of mastery over his voice and has forged an astonishingly long and successful career through a combination of talent and tenacity.  At 72 years old, he shows no signs of slowing down, often saying that, ““if [he] rests, [he] rusts.”

The program contains arias and duets from opera, operetta, musicals, zarzuela and songs.
