I decided this morning to trace the stats 

for a given time period. In only three hours,

I observe,for example that there were 40

"hits" in this time period. I guess you have

not deserted me (like in that opera in

the desert where the soprano sings,

"Sola,perduta,e abbandonata."). I thank

you for years of support,despite some glitches (and

the flu). Please send me personally any comments

(Placido21@aol.com), as I cannot open 

the comments page here, or I will get

all sorts of ads. We are up to over a million and a

half "hits."  Keep listening!!!

   Lovingly   Charlie

So there we were in the first row at Carnegie

and just before Tebaldi launched into this

aria, she looked down and winked at us! We

were sure she sang just for US!!!!!

Absolutely RIVETED by the Amfortas of

Ryan McKinny. I have seen the best, as 

you well know:London,Uhde,Schoeffler,etc.

This artist is a true STAR!!!

I do not believe that there has ever

been any soprano with the combination

of gorgeous voice quality and

Wagnerian volume.. When she sang "Pace"

at the Met in a concert with Bastianini

and Del Monaco, I thought the roof

would come down on the "Maledizione." I

so miss our yearly birthday (Feb.1) phone 

calls. NO artist was as sweet and dear

to us in our youth..and funny!

  One of the most riveting scenes in opera.

  It makes one cry!!!!!!! I met Silja once

and asked her for the Makropolous formula

so I could live 356 years so I could

listen to my collection. She must have thought I was nuts!! (I was!)

  Dear sweet funny Rolando had to

 see many doctors until he found

what was causing the vocal problems.

  I miss him..such fun we had with him.

After his Traviata debut we all walked

down Broadway and he was so excited

he almost hit his head on the glass

bus stop..I SAVED HIM!

  Sorry! My fonts were too big and some text is cut.I will be careful in the future.

 

I love singing the end of act two of my favorite opera and the video is of a show we did.I was the King (on left) BUT until I saw the tape, I did not realize that the great Sue Hassel thought she was Callas. How did I get involved in this mess?

Sue supposedly vocalizes on the NY Ed Koch bridge,walking home..This accounts for all the recent accidents!!!!

How do these people think they can sing??????????????

A marvelous compilation of the Aida E flat, made famous first by Callas.
