Plácido Domingo's first appearance on the stage at the Budapest Opera House was seen at the Shakespeare Gala on 6 February. Besides the legendary tenor, the programme featured seventeen opera singers, two ballet soloists, fourteen ballet dancers, a sixty-member choir, a seventy-piece orchestra and three conductors. They performed pieces mostly inspired by William Shakespeare.
The third charity event took place in this new form, whose aim was to let as many witness the first appearance of the legendary tenor as possible. Therefore, unlike in previous years, the auditorium was not transformed into one huge ballroom, and the most beautiful spaces in the Opera House gained new functions.
