Happy Thanksgiving

Whether or not you celebrate this holiday in your land, be most thankful for music in your lives, not to forget friends and family, and I thank you all for allowing me to bring opera into your lives, as it was brought to me.

Most sincerely,    Charlie

What a thrill to hear my dear Marisa Galvany (one of her fake names),friends for 50 of the most exciting singers in my experience....and when we did Bolena, I did check to see if there was some microphone down her throat.  What a treasure she has been.

How wonderful to discover a new talent!!!!!  Mme. Branchini is the Odabella on the Parmi DVD Attila. She has the excitement, attention to the word and phrase..great attacks..and mixed chest voice........We could use her HERE. I hope she has a huge career.......I was thrilled, especially since I have heard so many superb sopranos in my life.

Mediterranean Opera Studio will hold its New York City Winter Intensive this
year from January 12-24. We were incredibly impressed with the quality of
teaching and the advances made by attendees in Caltagirone, Sicily this
Summer 2014, and so we are bringing instructors Nelly Miricioiu and
Salvatore Fisichella to New York.

These exceptional teachers, together with MOS director Jack Li Vigni, will
help participants advance in their technical abilities and put them much
closer to their artistic goals as operatic performers. Both advanced and
intermediate singers will be accepted. The deadline to apply is December 20,

I just got really turned on to Nelly.  For NewYawkers.she will give me specifics.....
