NY Met hon­ors Domingo for 50 years on stage

The Sun Herald (Sunday) - - News - — AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Placido Domingo’s eyes wa­tered and his voice qua­vered. Af­ter por­tray­ing dozens of char­ac­ters over a half-cen­tury on the stage of New York’s Met­ro­pol­i­tan Opera House, he got emo­tional be­ing him­self.

“For us, the opera singers, it is just like Frank Si­na­tra said: New York, New York, if you made it, you made it ev­ery­where,” the 77-year-old singer from Spain said Fri­day night when he was hon­ored on stage for the 50th an­niver­sary of his Met de­but.

Domingo’s ca­reer with the Met started on Sept. 28, 1968. The per­for­mance Fri­day in the role of “Gi­anni Schic­chi,” the third opera of Puc­cini’s

“Il Trit­tico,” was his 52nd role and 695th ap­pear­ance at the Met.
