Placido Domingo, Roberto Alagna and other famous singers will be part of a special historical opera show that New York's Metropolitan Opera will hold for its 125th anniversary in March.

New York's Metropolitan Opera will mark its 125th anniversary next year with a retrospective featuring Placido Domingo and other singing greats, the Met said Tuesday.
  
The March 15 concert will feature 26 scenes evoking "historic classic productions and high points in the company's past," the opera said in a statement.
  
Fans will have a chance to recall "legendary moments we all wish we had heard, and reliving some whose memory we treasure. It's sure to be fascinating," said James Levine, music director.
  
Headlining the cast of current stars will be legendary tenor Domingo, who will also be marking the 40th year since his debut.
  
"We would like this to be a celebration of both the music and the rich theatrical history of the old and new Met," Met General Manager Peter Gelb said.
