Piotr Beczala Highlights from French Album

I present the magnificent tenor, Piotr Beczala, in arias from Werther, Le Cid, La Favorite, and Romeo et Juliette.

 Few tenors in my opera experience have thrilled me as much, and in addition he is the sweetest human being one could know.

 I did not give you the entire album, because if you don't buy it, he loses royalties.(I think!)

"Jaded" Charlie rarely calls most singers of today "GREAT!"

They are fine and to be loved for the most part, BUT I feel Rene Pape belongs in the "great" category. He was born Sept.4, 1964 and has shown he belongs with the best of all-time!

  He is a bit "cool" backstage, but he pulled a funny thing in a Faust Garden Scene a few seasons ago. Looking at Marguerite and her jewels, he exclaimed, " Diamonds are a girl's best friend!!" Coming from a seemingly serious guy, it was FUN!!!

Mr. Bing allowed Regina Resnik only ONE Marina, and here is the CG duet. Fabulous!  Then he wanted her to do the Innkeeper, which she called the "Chickenplucker."

When her son,Michael Davis, was about 7, she taught him the beautiful melody toward the end of the duet, and he sang it for us.

  It is very frustrating that Bing's "whims" prevented Resnik from the kind of career she had elsewhere, but at least we have material like this to remember her.(Birthday was Aug.30)
