      Bio

      Born in Madrid to parents who were Zarzuela performers, Plácido Domingo moved to Mexico at the age of eight. He went to Mexico City's Conservatory of Music to study piano and conducting, but eventually was sidetracked into vocal training after his voice was discovered. He made his operatic debut at Monterrey as Alfredo in "La Traviata" and then spent 2 ½ years with the Israel National Opera in Tel Aviv, singing 280 performances of 12 different roles. In 1966, he created the title role in the United States premiere of Ginastera's "Don Rodrigo" at the New York City Opera while appearing there in standard repertory as well. His Metropolitan Opera debut came in 1968, as Maurizio in "Adriana Lecouvreur. He has subsequently appeared there in more than 590 performances of 42 different roles and is now in his 38th consecutive season with the company (2006/7). He appears regularly at all the big opera houses of the world, including Milan's La Scala, the Vienna State Opera, London's Covent Garden, Paris' Bastille Opera, the San Francisco Opera, Chicago's Lyric Opera, the Washington National Opera, the Los Angeles Opera, the Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, the Real in Madrid, and at the Bayreuth and Salzburg Festivals.
