The perfect Plácido storm

Some ideas just seem to be timely. Yesterday and today, a couple of other outlets weighed on, as I did, on the multi-tasking of Plácido Domingo.

"L.A. Opera's $14 Million Imbroglio" in L.A. Weekly.
"Plácido Domingo Juggles Many Jobs and Many Opera Companies" in The New York Times.

Edited to add: On his blog, Tim Smith of The Baltimore Sun also has some thoughts on the subject.

OK, so why don't we give the big man a chance to tell us the things from his point of view. As I said before, while I am not too happy about some of the decisions made by Domingo, about his absence, and about the conservative repertoire, I am still willing to give him more credit for reasons I previously stated: the fact that he's a quick study and learns from his mistakes, and the fact that he's an excellent fund raiser. To say nothing of the prestige his name brings. So let's hear what he has to say.
