José Carreras & Placido Domingo to Reunite for Concert

By Francisco Salazar

José Carreras and Plácido Domingo are set to reunite for a concert in 2023.

The two tenors will reunite to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their last Three Tenors concert in 2003. The performance will be held at the Tokyo Garden Theater on Jan. 26, 2023 and will be dedicated to Luciano Pavarotti.

Carreras and Domingo made up the Three Tenors with Pavarotti in the 1990s and early 2000s. The trio first collaborated in a performance at the ancient Baths of Caracalla in Rome, Italy in 1990, the eve of the 1990 FIFA World Cup Final. 800 million audience members watched the concert on global television.

The recording of this debut concert became the best-selling classical album of all time and led to additional performances and live albums. They went on to perform together in 1994, 1998, and 2002. They also toured other cities around the world. Their final performance together was on Sept. 28, 2003.

Pavarotti died in 2007 and was recently given the star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Domingo is next headed for Latvia for Operalia while Carreras is headed to Kuwait for a concert performances in November.
