“FROM MY LATIN SOUL”: Plácido Domingo & Company’s thrilling renditions of Latin music favorites, featuring a full orchestra, rising opera stars and talented flamenco, tango, and folkloric dancers, kept the audience firmly planted throughout four encores – or was it five? RHUMBA TIME!: At the post-midnight supper dance where 300 benefactors paid $1,000-and-up to cozy up to the cast, including soprano Virginia Tola, chic and talented young conductor Alondra de la Parra and her handsome husband Carlos Zedillo Velasco (son of ex-Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo), Mexican Amb. Arturo Sarukhan and wife Veronica, co-chairwomen Lucky Roosevelt and Isabel Ernst, Robert Duvall, Vicki Sant, and Jim Kimsey.
