Placido Domingo 50 Years in LA

Garth Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Mayor Garcetti help LA Opera celebrate a half century of Plácido Domingo


At the close of the Los Angeles Opera’s Plácido Domingo 50th Anniversary Concert at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles on Friday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti joined L.A. Opera chairman Marc Stern, county Supervisor Hilda Solis and the night’s performers onstage to present the opera star with a proclamation declaring it “Plácido Domingo Day” in Los Angeles.

“There are two types of people here in Los Angeles,” Garcetti said, “those like myself, lucky enough to be born here, and those smart enough to come here. We are so blessed that in 1967 this angel descended with his wings here to bless us and to plant the seed of possibility here in Los Angeles.”
