This season the Met premieres this gorgeous work, completing the "Queen Trilogy."   Beverly Sills was the last soprano in NY to perform it, and Sondra Radvanovsky should be superb.

However, not enough people recognize the magnificence of dear Olivia Stapp (image not great), who should be better known, like so many others I present. She is also a dear person and now works with inner-city kids and is loved by all!!!

Leyla Gencer was born on Oct.10, 1928. One of the great ladies of opera, the "Queen of the Pirates." She and Shirley Verrett burn up the stage. The audience loves "PIE!"

This Maria Stuarda Confrontation Scene is amazing!!!!!!!!!

The narrator is a bit on the "countertenor" side.

When I did a mini-class for Dolora's students, I asked her how she felt singing this glorious music.

 She replied, "I am interested in getting the notes out!!"  

 We take so much for granted..they SUFFER for us!!!!

  Born on Oct.2, 1890, Groucho (and his brothers) were legendary and opera was never so much fun!!!!!  (with Margaret Dumont, of course.)

 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!!!!!!
