For his part, Plácido Domingo had some loving words for her: “I am very sorry that my dear Ainhoa ​​cannot accompany me on this occasion on the Starlite stage. We all want to wish Ainhoa ​​Arteta a very speedy recovery and that he can do a concert with her to recover this show. We hope to see her shine again very soon. “

On this occasion, the baritone Plácido Domingo shared the stage with Saioa Hernández, whom the Madrilenian gave way, thanking him for his presence: “We want to thank another great Spanish soprano, Saioa Hernández, with whom I have shared the stage on several occasions, including at La Scala in Milan, for having accepted the call and joined the concert in the last few hours. “Saioa Hernández is the most international Spanish soprano today. She made her debut under the guidance of Montserrat Caballé and has performed in the most prestigious European theaters, which has made her a new star in world opera.
