Domingo, Placido

(plă`cēdō dōmē`gō), 1941–, Spanish operatic tenor, b. Madrid, Spain. He made his operatic debut in Mexico City in 1961 and his New York debut at the Metropolitan Opera four years later. Domingo is best known for his warm voice and his interpretation of lyric roles in Italian opera, although he has also sung in Wagnerian operas. Among his most famous roles are Don José in Carmen, Canio in Pagliacci, and Pinkerton in Madame Butterfly. He has taken on a variety of baritone roles late in his career as his voice has deepened. Domingo became the artistic director of the Washington Opera in 1996 and of the Los Angeles Opera in 2000.
