Placido Domingo Hit by Artery Blockage

July 10, 2013

OPERA singer Placido Domingo is in the hospital after suffering a blockage in an artery of the lungs.

Domingo's representative says the 72-year-old is expected to make a full recovery but will have to miss several appearances scheduled for later this month. He was admitted to the hospital yesterday in Madrid.

Doctors say the pulmonary embolism was caused by a blood clot.

The singer's representative, Nancy Seltzer, says doctors have asked the Spanish tenor and conductor to rest for three to four weeks, but that healing time varies. His return to the stage will depend on how quickly he regains his strength.
