Plácido Domingo is set for a concert performance in Moscow on Oct. 17, 2019 at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow.

The concert will feature the famed Spanish tenor alongside conductor Yuri Bashmet and Plácido Domingo Jr, the tenor’s own son. The concert will also feature Eugene Kohn as concert.

Per a press release by Russian News Agency TASS, the concert will feature a wide range of repertory, including arias that Domingo has performed over the course of his 60-year career. There will also be music from Zarzuela and classical Broadway musical theater and operetta.

Domingo was recently accused of sexual harassment in the United States and is currently being investigated by the Los Angeles Opera for potential misconduct during his time as General Manager. However, despite seeing a number of U.S. engagement canceled, Domingo’s career in Europe has seen no setbacks with the tenor performing to standing ovations at the Salzburg a few weeks back. Moreover, all European companies that currently have contracts with Domingo have stated publicly that they will back the tenor.
