Plácido Domingo has been described in the international press as "the King of Opera", a true renaissance man in music and the greatest operatic artist of modern times. He has sung 151 different roles, more than any other tenor in the annals of music, with more than 4 000 career performances. The Artist made hundreds of audio and video recordings and films. He has opened the Metropolitan Opera season a record setting 21 different times, having surpassed in 1999 the old Caruso record of 17 opening nights.
