At his 72 years old, when many opera singers live comfortably their retirement, Plácido Domingo continues his unstoppable artistic career: every season, he adds new characters to his opera repertoire, he conducts orchestras, he manages the Opera theatre in Los Angeles, he supports new talents in the lyric world by the annual contest “Operalia”… and all of this with an incredible energy.
On top of the singer himself, in the documentary we will see may other artists with whom Plácido has shared stage recently as his own son, who besides of singing is a producer and a composer¸Zubin Mehta, the music conductor,Helga Schmidt, artistic director of the Palau de Les Arts in Valencia, Ainhoa Arteta, soprano singer, Joyce Didonato, mezzosoprano, Pedro Halffter, music conductor, Ivan Magri, tenor or Omar Meir Wellber, another music conductor.
The rehearsals of Placido Domingo with the orchestra of Comunitat Valenciana for the bi-century Verdi-Wagner are the connecting thread of the documentary. The orchestra will perform obertures and pieces of different composers. Each theme will serve as an introduction of the different chapters that define Placido as an artist today.
