Placido Domingo quotes

Every three days on average, I am alone on stage, facing the public.

If money was my only motivation, I would organize myself differently.

My strength is my enthusiasm.

I feel like a little boy who is constantly offered new toys.

I feel at home in an orchestral score.

The voice collects and translates your bad physical health, your emotional worries, your personal troubles.

I then realized that I could never be satisfied again with the mere natural charm of my voice, that I had to constantly paint when singing, melting all the colors, expressing reds and blacks that had to be less primary but bursting with subtly colored combinations.

But enough joking. I am singing. This is all my life.

Let us be clear: I take ten times more money for a concert than for an opera performance.

The public is a part of my real life.

But I won't deprive myself of singing opera as long as my voice follows.

I am never wrong when it comes to my possibilities.

I have always studied my parts with the orchestral score and not with the piano reduction.

On the other hand, I have devoted so much energy to reach the top that I accept the stress of being there.

Should it happen tomorrow, I would fall to my knees to give thanks to God for such a career.

The atmosphere of the theater is my oxygen.

Don't you think it astonishing that, at 58, I am still working at improving my career?

I was married at 16, a father at 17 and divorced at 18.

I will prove that a great conducting career is expecting me.

In the last century, everybody was singing lower.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. John Lennon

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age

I can be a nice person, but if someone is messing with someone I care about, the tougher side comes out a little more. Daniella Alonso
