Plácido Domingo et Ermonela Jaho ensemble au Festival de Peralada 2018
Le célèbre ténor Placido Domingo et la soprano albanaise Ermonela Jaho ont électrisé la salle du Festival de Castell de Peralada (Gérone), interprétant l’œuvre de Jules Massenet, Thais. Le quotidien espagnol El Pais, entre autres, écrit que les deux artistes ont étonné le public de Castell de Peralada où ils étaient accompagnés par la chorale du Théâtre royal de Madrid.
Les événements de Thais sont une réflexion profonde sur les valeurs de la société, dans lesquelles s’entremêlent les émotions fortes et le caractère des personnages, ce qui explique pourquoi l’œuvre de Jules Massenet, Thais, est un peu différente des œuvres de Verdi ou Puccini.
Thaïs est un opéra en trois actes de Jules Massenet, livret de Louis Gallet, d’après le roman éponyme d’Anatole France. Il a été créé à l’Opéra de Paris le 16 mars 1894 et donné pour la première fois en province au Grand Théâtre de Reims en janvier 1895.
Los tres tenores chinos, Wei Song, Mo Hualun y Dai Yuqiang, en el Gran Salón del Pueblo de Beijing el 21 de octubre de 2011. El tenor español Plácido Domingo mantiene una estrecha amistad con China, donde ha actuado en numerosas ocasiones. En 2011 realizó un concierto especial en Beijing en el que le acompañaron los tres tenores más famosos de China.

#Kwonseokyung#권서경 , #bassbaritone , has gained fame through ‘#PhantomSinger ,’ #JTBC . He won popularity as being a good singer and good-figured, noble-looking man.
But, his life was not always smooth as he appeared. While he was studying abroad in #Italy , the home of #opera , he worked at random for practical reasons—as a restaurant server, barista and/or part-timer at Korean restaurant. Even so, Kwon, the ‘Positive Mind,’ is bright; He took that as an opportunity to share more talks with Italian natives. “I found the elements of singing in the rhythms hidden in Italian language. Life itself was a study,” he smiled.
Things were not easy even after he returned to Korea. Under the practices of the field which had a narrow market, he was often improperly treated even though coming on opera stages. And then, Phantom Singer dramatically turned around his life. As the team ‘Heungspresso,’ which he formed with musical actors, #Koeunsung , #Paekhyunghun , and a tenor, #Leedongshin , reached to a final at season 1, in late 2016, he received a great attention. Kwon looked back, “Phantom Signer was a turning point and watershed of life.” And he brought out his songs to the world as first—#Musica , a #crossover#duetalbum with #Koeunsung , and First Tango, the first solo album. It is a choice of genres to meet more various public, though #classicalmusic is still his base. “I’d like to ‘kwonseokyungnize’ other genres, too. I don’t think it is unfaithful to sing other genres. It is an attitude to fit the current era. Even classical music was a genre like popular music at that time. I believe, only when doing various genres and thus, fandom is created, my root cannot be swayed anymore,” Kwon emphasized.
The final dream of Kwon who wants to lead popularization of opera is to be like the world-famous #operasinger , #PlacidoDomingo , who is flexible in various fields, as singing #PerhapsLove with a pop singer, #JohnDenver .
Kwon, who vaguely dreamed to be an opera singer when young to see the performance of the #ThreeTenors in the 20th century with Domingo included, has a mind “to expand classical music market more with a story and music that fits the age.” #뉴시스#Newsis#이재훈기자

Finally got to publish that interview with the legendary Jose Caerreras. Met the maestro in Moscow earlier in the year to discuss his upcoming retirement. A kind and gentle soul." I would like to have the right thing to say to young people first. What could I say? Well, you need to be sure that your profession is the most wonderful in the world. And then you need to have discipline and put in the effort, study and try to be in the best shape possible." Interview with @thenationaluae is out now. Link in bio:)
A veces queremos respuestas inmeditas a nuestras situaciones. A veces nos conformamos pensando "no todp tiene una respuesta" pero eso no es cierto. En la vida hay una respuesta para todo, pero tambien un momento para ello. No es grato esperar cuando las dudas nos embriagan, pero siempre la recompensa a la paciencia será la paz. Desesperarte no traera mas pronto la respuesta a tus dudas, por el contrario, esperar con paciencia te permitira aprender, sea cual sea esa respuesta.

Slovakia 🇸🇰 Woman detained in Slovakia for playing Verdi for 16 years. A woman who has been driving her neighbours crazy by blasting out opera music for 16 years has finally been arrested in Slovakia, it's reported. According to Hungarian news site Parameter.sk, the woman, identified only as Eva N, played a four-minute aria from Giuseppe Verdi's 'La Traviata' non-stop, in her house with on speakers full blast, from morning until night. Kind of genius. •
Slovakia 🇸🇰 Woman detained in Slovakia for playing Verdi for 16 years. "I love Placido Domingo," one woman said in a video for Hungarian news site Index.hu, referring to the Spanish singer whose version she was playing, "but not like this!” Police arrested the woman on Monday and she faces charges of harassment and malicious persecution. She's been remanded in custody and if found guilty, she could face between six months and three years in prison. It has not been made clear when she will stand trial. •
So obviously a woman in Slovakia has been arrested for terrorizing her street by playing ONE aria from La Traviata over and over again for SIXTEEN YEARS. That, my friends, is dedication.
I love Gershwin! (Both Ira and George) 😁 One time I was singing with Maestro Placido Domingo in #Moscow , #Russia and I asked him if we could sing the duet "Bess you is my woman now" together. The conversation went like this... Me: "Maestro Domingo we should sing something from Porgy and Bess."
MD (Maestro Domingo): "Oh, I love the music of Gershwin, but there is nothing for me in this opera."
Me: "Of course there is, we can sing Bess, you is my woman now"
MD: "My dear, this is a beautiful duet, but Porgy is a bass, I am a baritone. (he smiled) But maybe we can sing something from West Side Story?... you know, I loved Leonard Bernstein." So as it happened we ended up singing Tonight, tonight from West Side Story! 😁
