Plácido Domingo, the king of opera, heads to Las Vegas for Mexican Independence Day

Plácido Domingo has sung more than 145 roles in 3,500 career performances

One of the world's most renowned tenors will visit Las Vegas to help celebrate Mexican Independence Day. 

Placido Domingo, opera star, conductor and director of the Los Angeles Opera, will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Tuesday, Sept. 15. 

Domingo has performed for more than half a century, with more than 800 performances at the Metropolitan Opera alone. He has sung more than 145 roles, both as tenor and baritone, with more than 3,500 career performances and more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias and duets and crossover discs.

Over the course of his career, he has earned 12 Grammy Awards, including three Latin Grammys, and he has made more than 50 music videos.

His appearances with his colleagues Jose Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti in the now legendary The Three Tenors concerts perhaps gave him the most fame in his career.

Domingo has conducted more than 500 opera performances and symphonic concerts with the Metropolitan Opera, Covent Garden, Vienna Staatsoper, LA Opera, Chicago Symphony, Vienna Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, National Symphony, London Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Berlin Philharmonic, among others.
Newsweek and other international publications have fittingly described Domingo as “the King of Opera,” “a true renaissance man in music,” and “the greatest operatic artist of modern times.”
Tickets start at $79.50 and go on sale on Friday, June 26.
