Performance with PlÃ¡cido Domingo, the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra and director Guillermo Figueroa at Bellas Artes August 31st, 2006. The concert consisted of opera and Zarzuela arias as well the Ballabile from Act III of Otello. I was extremely impressed with PlÃ¡cido. As this was the first time I had seen him perform, I was struck by his captivating stage presence. His is an incredible entertainer and a consummate musician. Also of note: during the concert the governer of Puerto Rico, AnÃbal Acevedo VilÃ¡ gave a speech thanking Maestro Domingo for his 35 years of performances and visits in Puerto Rico and spoke of the new concert hall being built for the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra.
