The performance will start at 8pm at UC Berkeley in Berkeley,  CA.

Legendary tenor Placido Domingo returns to the Bay Area! Accompanied by the Berkeley Symphony, the world-renowned star lends his magnificent voice to a program of operatic favorites from Verdi and Wagner, American classics from Rogers, Loewe, and Bernstein, and Spanish popular song. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear this master musician under the stars in the beautiful setting of UC Berkeley's historic Greek Theatre, named one of the Top 10 amphitheaters in America by Rolling Stone magazine. 

Placido Domingo is a world-renowned, multifaceted artist, recognized not only as one of the finest and most influential singing actors in the history of opera but also as a respected conductor. And as General Director of Los Angeles Opera and Washington National Opera, he is a major force as an opera administrator. He turned seventy in January 2011, but his gifts and energy remain undiminished. Domingo's vocal repertoire encompasses 140 stage roles - a number unmatched by any other celebrated tenor in history - and he has recently added the title baritone roles of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra and Rigoletto to his list of achievements. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets, and crossover discs have earned him eleven Grammy Awards and two Latin Grammy Awards, and he has won Emmy awards for the television film "Homage to Seville" and for the Met's "Silver Gala" program. He was the Latin Recording Academy's Person of the Year in 2010. Newsweek and other international publications have fittingly described Plácido Domingo as "the King of Opera," "a true renaissance man in music," and "the greatest operatic artist of modern times."
