Opera legend Placido Domingo will perform in Israel on September 4 at Tel Aviv’s Menora Mivtachim Arena.

The 81-year-old maestro will hold the role of soloist, singing with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Eugene Cohen.

Domingo is marking a nearly 70-year career, having performed more than 150 roles and 4,100 performances globally.

The NIS 290 ($84) tickets can be purchased online.

The Spanish opera star survived coronavirus and accusations of sexual misconduct in the last two years.

A 2020 investigation by the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA) concluded that Domingo had behaved inappropriately with female performers over three decades. No criminal case was brought to court.

US institutions canceled planned engagements and Domingo resigned as general director of the Los Angeles Opera.

Domingo has said he never harassed anyone and regrets remaining silent for too much time.

He has performed in several countries since and is due to sing in Verdi’s Nabucco in Spain in July.
