Placido Domingo recovering 'satisfactorily' from surgery

Plácido Domingo is recovering from surgery to remove his gallbladder and is expected to leave the hospital soon, his spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The spokeswoman said that the "surgery went very, very well. He is recovering satisfactorily and we expect that he will be discharged in the coming days. " She didn't elaborate.

The 74-year-old tenor was admitted to a New York hospital last week after experiencing intense pain during a dress rehearsal for the Metropolitan Opera's production of "Tosca," which he had been scheduled to conduct.
