Placido Domingo will sing the title role in “Gianni Schicchi” at the Metropolitan Opera.

The tenor revealed in an interview with Beckmesser that he will portray the title character in celebration of “Il Triticco’s” centenary in the 2017-19 season.

Domingo has already portrayed Gianni Schicchi to great success at the Los Angeles Opera where he scored rave reviews. Critics said, “Domingo still sings with impressive heft in the upper ranges of his voice.”

The tenor continues a busy scheduled this season as he continues concerts in Texas, Slovenia, and conducts a revival of “Tosca” at the Royal Opera House. He also makes his role debut as Miller in “Luisa Miller” at the Metropolitan Opera alongside Sonya Yoncheva. He also joins Anna Netrebko for “La Traviata,” “Macbeth” and a World Cup concert.

The Metropolitan Opera announces its 2018-19 season in February with more details.

  1. Oh my god. When will he sing Falstaff ? He may be still quite good as Boccanegra, Germont or Macbeth, but this repertory needs true baritones. I’ve seen the LA performance on youtube and it was a little embarrassing. Take Ambrogio Maestri from the Munich staging, and you will hardly get anyone better these days.
