Star tenor Placido Domingo regaled a crowd in frigid Mexico City with a weekend Christmas concert under the gilded iconic El Angel statue in a central part of the city.

Tens of thousands of people, by the city’s count, crowded into the Angel plaza and along the central Paseo de la Reforma boulevard for half a mile to hear the free concert Saturday night.


In addition to operatic and Christmas classics, Domingo included a rendition of the Mexican oldie ‘Besame Mucho’ in his performance.
