Placido Domingo, dubbed the “King of Opera,” will be performing in Seoul for a concert on Sunday. The 75-year-old tenor has returned for his first performance in Korea in two years, making this his sixth visit to the country. However, Domingo said at a press conference before the concert that this show may be his last in Seoul.

“Of course I would be happy to come back and perform again,” said Domingo. “But I don’t know how much more time I will be singing.”
“No one has security for their voices. No one knows if I’ll be singing for three more years, or three more months. I’m just happy that I have been able to extend my career this long.”

He added that he does not currently have any health concerns.

The tenor also expressed interest in growing ties with the Korean opera industry by singing Korean songs.

“Korean repertoires are very beautiful, and I would like to continue singing them,” he said. “Currently, I am working to produce an album of Korean songs.”

Domingo will be performing Sunday at the Jamsil Sports Stadium at 7 p.m. Tickets range from 110,000 won ($99.83) to 330,000 won.
