On May 7, Plácido Domingo returns to great performances on PBS.

The tenor-turned-baritone stars in Verdi’s “Nabucco” from the Metropolitan Opera’s recent revival of the composer’s early masterwork.

Domingo is joined by an exceptional cast that includes the dramatic soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska as Abigaille and Dmitry Belosselskiy as Zaccaria. Jamie Barton stars as Fenena while Russell Thomas is Ismaele. James Levine conducted the revival in Elijah Moshinsky’s classic production.

When the opera was shown in December, it obtained rave reviews and OperaWire wrote that “Placido Domingo, 75, Is Still a Rockstar.”

This is the fifth opera shown from this year’s Live in HD series on PBS. Previously the series began with Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” in January and was followed by Mozart’s ‘Don Giovanni” and Saariaho’s “L’Amour de Loin.” Gounod’s “Roméo et Juliette” will also be shown prior to “Nabucco.” This year marks the eleventh season since the Metropolitan Opera and PBS reunited to present opera.
