Maestro Plácido Domingo at the Royal Opera House

Top two photos from In Conversation with Plácido Domingo hosted by ROH Director Sir Antonio Pappano (12/10/14).

Bottom two photos from the curtain call of I Due Foscari (14/10/14).

Such as wonderful experience to see him on stage and also in a more intimate capacity.

Was at the Royal Opera House today for their conversation with Placido Domingo event. He is such a wonderful musician and human being it was great being in the same room and hearing his insights. Might even have the opportunity to see him in Il Due Foscari at Covent Garden on Tuesday!
