FANFAIRE celebrates PLACIDO DOMINGO
living legend

IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE “DOGE OF LA”

Why the “Doge of LA” is a living legend

This video of the “Treasures of Los Angeles 2013″ honoring PLACIDO DOMINGO says it all:

How can a city in the wild west be so lucky? Yes, it’s no longer just about Hollywood and Disneyland! With Placido, Gustavo, the fabled architectures of Disney Concert Hall and The Getty–to name just the most notable icons of the city, does anyone still dare say LA is a cultural desert?

Below are video playlists highlighting the milestones of Domingo’s career:

Turandot Placido Domingo Metropolitan Opera 1988

This is a small cut from the aria that struck me so much that I just had to share it with all of you. Lyrics:
—Italian—
CALAF
No, no, Principessa altera.
Ti voglio tutta ardente d’amor!

LA FOLLA
Coraggioso! Audace!
Coraggioso! O forte!

CALAF
Tre enigmi m’hai proposto,
e tre ne sciolsi.
Uno soltanto a te ne proporrò:
il mio nome non sai.
Dimmi il mio nome.
Dimmi il mio nome,
prima dell’alba,
e all’alba morirò!

—English—
CALAF
No, proud Princess,
I would have you aflame with love!

PEOPLE
You are fearless, you are daring!
Fearless and strong!

CALAF
You set me three riddles,
and I solved them.
I will put but one to you:
you do not know my name.
Discover it.
Tell me my name
before morning,
and at dawn I am ready to die!

The Three Tenors is a name given to the Spanish singers Plácido Domingo and José Carreras and the Italian singer Luciano Pavarotti who sang in concert under this banner during the 1990s and early 2000s. The trio began their collaboration with a performance at the ancient Baths of Caracalla, in Rome, Italy, on July 7, 1990 — the eve of the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final. Zubin Mehta conducted the orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the orchestra of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.
