Placido Domingo 50 Anniversary Night
August 4th 2019 8.45 pm
ARENA DI VERONA
FESTIVAL LIRICO 2019
On 4th August 2019 the stage will host the Plácido Domingo 50 Arena Anniversary Night, which will present a new production of three opera acts in scenic form, with the Arena artistes and a legendary cast alongside the world’s great opera star, performing in three different roles.
The program is entirely dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi: Parts III and IV of Nabucco (which, alongside “Va’ pensiero”, a true “must”, include wonderful duets and the great aria Dio di Giuda), Act 1 of I due Foscari (a great early Verdi opera, never performed at the Arena) and the final act of Macbeth, one of Domingo’s baritone pièces de résistance and a trove of musical gems such as the great sleepwalking scene and the aria Pietà, rispetto, amore.
Worldwide star Domingo began his illustrious career in Italy precisely at the Arena di Verona in the summer of 1969, with Turandot and Don Carlo, alongside other legends such as Montserrat Caballé, Birgit Nilsson, Piero Cappuccilli and Fiorenza Cossotto, in marvellous productions. A top-level international career then followed, which continues to this day, as a tenor, baritone, orchestra conductor, general manager and mentor of young talents.
The performances already scheduled with which he will be the star of 2019, therefore further strengthen the deep bond between the Verona amphitheatre’s Opera Festival and this great artiste, 50 years after his debut on the world’s largest stage.
