Here are 37 examples of the great Rigoletto moment, courtesy of "Coloratura Fan," a marvelous contributor to our entertainment.

 Please get someone to do this with you, and forward the clip to me so I can play it for Lucic and Lungu.

Michael Corvino sings this inspiring and heart-wrenching song from "The Most Happy Fella."

  Last thing (Robert Weede) my ma and dad saw before he passed it has a special nostalgic memory for me.

Michael is just magnificent here and we know him as a beautiful, warm human being as well!!!!!!

Bryan Hymel Heroique Album

On occasion, a brilliant artist comes along and thrills audiences all over the globe. Here are three excerpts from tenor Bryan Hymel's Album entitled "Heroique."

The operas are: Vepres Siciliennes, Les Troyens (where he made a Met debut on short notice and was a sensation. See Youtube), and Queen of Sheba.

 Buy the whole album!!!!  As usual, I only give you excerpts, since I  would not want him to lose royalties. He is too nice a guy!

Just got a call from dear Irina Rindzuner, on the way back to Europe, where she has been a brilliant success in Nabucco,Dutchman,Turandot,Aida,Trovatore,etc.

I "discovered' her as Santuzza in the now defunct City Opera, and we became friends.

  How can you eat with all that screaming? It should have been in a Chinese restaurant!!! She sure sings with plenty of MSG!!!!

Had not seen this in a while...She used to slowly rise out of the chair on "Ma,quando vien lo sgelo,"come forward slowly, and when she got to the top note, the Met SHOOK!!!

You cannot tell from records!!!!! My tears just started to flow,remembering what she was to me personally and to all of us "kids" Nostra MADRE!!!!

I carry with me the beautiful memory of Renata and will always remember how she was with her "children."
