LONDON (AP) ' Placido Domingo will sing the title character in Verdi's "Nabucco" for the first time at The Royal Opera next year.

The new production, announced Wednesday, will be the fourth new role for Domingo in little more than a year, all baritone parts.

The Royal Opera also will present the British premiere of George Benjamin's "Written on Skin," and new productions of Meyerbeer's "Robert le Diable," Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin," Rossini's "La Donna del Lago" and Britten's "Gloriana."
