Seltzer says the malignancy was localized. She says Domingo is expected to resume his singing schedule at Milan's Teatro alla Scala on April 16 with a performance of Verdi's "Simon Boccanegra."

In addition to singing and conducting, Domingo will continue as general director of the Los Angeles Opera and the Washington National Opera.
