According to a photograph published on Plácido Domingo's Facebook page, the legendary tenor, conductor and general manager of the Los Angeles Opera has been released from a Madrid hospital.

The 72-year-old Spanish singer was hospitalized with a pulmonary embolism earlier this week, a condition in which a loose blood clot can travel dangerously close to the heart. He was forced to cancel a set of appearances in the Daniel Catán opera Il Postino, but is expected to resume his busy schedule forthwith.

Mr. Domingo's summer plans include a set of performances as Giacomo in Verdi's rarely performed early opera Giovanna d'Arco. ("Joan of Arc") at this summer's Salzburg Festival. We here at Superconductor wish Mr. Domingo continued health and recovery from his illness.
