Press release from: M.E.N Arena

World-famous tenor, Plácido Domingo, announces his only UK show of 2007 with a night at the M.E.N Arena on Tuesday 2 May. Tickets, priced £45, £65 & £95, now on sale.

Marking his first solo appearance in this country for over a decade, the Spanish tenor, who rose to prominence as one of The Three Tenors - alongside Luciano Pavarotti and Jose Carreras - has been hailed in the international press as “The King of Opera” and “The greatest operatic artist of modern times”.

Born in Madrid to parents who were Zarzuela performers, Plácido Domingo moved to Mexico at the age of eight. He went to Mexico City's Conservatory of Music to study piano and conducting, but eventually was sidetracked into vocal training after his voice was discovered. He made his operatic debut at Monterrey as Alfredo in La Traviata and then spent 2 ½ years with the Israel National Opera in Tel Aviv, singing 280 performances of 12 different roles. In 1966, he created the title role in the United States premiere of Ginastera's Don Rodrigo at the New York City Opera while appearing there in standard repertory as well. His Metropolitan Opera debut came in 1968, as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur. He has subsequently appeared there in more than 590 performances of 42 different roles and is now in his 38th consecutive season with the company (2006/7).

Domingo appears regularly at the big opera houses of the world, including Milan's La Scala, the Vienna State Opera, Paris' Bastille Opera, the San Francisco Opera, Chicago's Lyric Opera, the Washington National Opera, the Los Angeles Opera, the Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, the Real in Madrid, and at the Bayreuth and Salzburg Festivals.
