Just came back from Mme.Butterfly.Alagna was superb ,and more than that, backstage he was so lovable, funny,enjoyable for all to relish.

Nicest thing he said, "I know you...because I can see in your eyes your love for opera."  But I said, "Who,me???"

  Dear faithful opera buddies,
  

It is always frustrating for me not to be able to allow comments, since the site becomes inundated with annoying commercials. If you have comments, suggestions, or if you are an artist who has some Youtube clips I can post for you, let me know  at Placido21@aol.com.
 

Also, I assume you sometimes search the archives and listen to some of the old material, but if for some reason you cannot find an old favorite, I will gladly repost it.
           My best    Charlie

Here is a guy who thinks he is the succesor to Nicolai Gedda. Let us give him credit! (or should we?)
