Placido Domingo conducts La Traviata at the Sofia Opera

Plácido Domingo will conduct the opera "La Traviata" by Verdi at the Sofia Opera and Ballet. This will happen on September 15, and the Opera reminds that in recent years the singer, who turned from a tenor into a baritone, loves conducting. Domingo usually does so during the gala concerts of his own Operalia Festival, which is where opera singer Sonya Yoncheva's career began.

The Sofia Opera did not announce which performers will appear with maestro Domingo.

Days before, Placido Domingo will perform a concert with popular arias from beloved operas on September 11 at Arena Sofia. "Bulgaria, I am very happy that we will be together again," he wrote on his official page. the 82-year-old singer, nicknamed "The King of Opera", is on a world tour that includes Sofia. His team says the maestro is preparing a special surprise for his visit this year. In 2014, he brought the audience to its feet with a performance of the song "My Country, My Bulgaria" by Emil Dimitrov.
