Last evening, we were privileged to see Korean baritone Hyung Yun, on very short notice, sing Nottingham in Roberto Devereux at the Met. How wonderful to witness a marvelous new voice, a consummate musician

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???"
