Today is Placido Domingos 70th birthday and we at Classicalify would like to wish Mr Domingo the happiest of birthdays and many more to come. His birthday celebration will be in Madrid at Teatro Real tonight and of course plenty of singers will attend as well as many other artists in the world opera. It's impossible to describe what Mr Domingo has done for music besides singing. He is artistic director, conductor, teacher and much more. He is the first recipient of the Birgit Nilsson price in 2009 and Classicalify will never forget that wonderful evening at the Royal Opera house in Stockholm. He was moved to tears. According to a source the next award ceremony will be in Stockholm again. If you are in Madrid get yourself a ticket for the event.
