On Sunday, the Met is literally turning the tables, throwing a dinner-dance on the same stage for the Spaniard’s golden anniversary. Invited guests include soprano Renee Fleming, sculptor Jeff Koons and the company’s new music director, Yannick Nezet-Seguin (yah-NEEK’ NEH’-zet seh’-GEH’). Domingo is currently appearing in his 52nd main role at the Met – as Germont (zher-MOH’) in Verdi’s “La Traviata.” The lifelong tenor now sings as a baritone, appearing in top theaters worldwide.
