THE multi-award-winning tenor and baritone Placido Domingo has stated his belief that Catalonia and Spain ‘need one another’.
Domingo, who performed at the Barcelona Olympics closing ceremony, cancelled October concerts after being admitted to hospital with gallbladder inflammation.
But the conductor and opera star has given voice to his cherished credo, stating: “My grandfather and my father were from Barcelona. I was born in Madrid. I consider myself Spanish and I am very proud of Madrid, my city, and Barcelona, ??where I lived for so long.”
“Catalonia needs Spain and Spain needs Catalonia,” he added.
