Placido Domingo he received a lot of criticism both as an interpreter and as a conductor: the double flop at the Arena di Verona it made a lot of noise, both for the amnesia and vocal uncertainties of the opera myth, and for the orchestra’s refusal to get up for the traditional tribute at the end of the show.

“All singers should quit at a certain age,” is the advice he came from Katia Ricciarelli, who in the past was a great soprano. You therefore have every right to offer advice to the tenor who has just returned from two very noisy flops: “It is a physiological question – explained Ricciarelli – the vocal cords are muscles that, with age, no longer snap as they once did. . This is the reason why I too don’t do more works: I don’t want to risk it. Marilyn Horne, an American alto and mezzo-soprano, told me several years ago that when she encountered only one note in an opera that bothered her, she stopped interpreting it. I agree with you ”.

“Domingo has always been a great tenor – he added – why become a baritone over the years? It’s something I don’t understand. We are creatures of the public and we must accept the judgment that is given to us. Quoting the conductor Von Karajan: if you believe in the good things that are said to you, then you must also believe in the bad ones. In short, it takes self-criticism. I am not the same Katia Ricciarelli of the past ”.
