Los Angeles / Madrid - Spanish opera tenor Placido Domingo has been admitted to a Madrid hospital after suffering a pulmonary embolism - a blood clot in his lung, his US publicist said on Tuesday.
Domingo, 72, was hospitalised on Monday in his hometown and is expected to make a full recovery in about three to four weeks, publicist Nancy Seltzer said. "He's doing very well and responding very well to treatment," she said.
Domingo, who also serves as the general director of the Los Angeles Opera, has been forced to cancel five performances due later in July in the opera Il Postino at the Madrid Royal Theatre, a statement from the theatre said.
It said his hospitalisation will also prevent him from conducting an orchestral performance in Madrid's Plaza Major planned for 21 July.
