  Our 1970 Bolena with Galvany holding the D 5 hrs.and a new guy named Sam Ramey. I was Rochefort. I am the only person who could look down her throat while she sang high D and E flat!!!! Who would know Sam would become one of the all-time greats.

  I met Sam at our first Bolena rehearsal in 1970. He has been one of the great singers of our time. Love to him!!!

  I once told Ricky Di Giuseppe how I loved his high E flat in Coq d'or..He replied, "HIGH E natural!!" So now Michael shows off his fabulous top!!!!!!

George Gershwin allowed only Afro-Americans in Porgy and Bess. That is a shame, because, from the GRAVE, next season at the Met, the new Porgy will be presented. Well, Mari actually sings this as if she were in the grave. Bless her. She tries so hard.

She created this role, and following this are two more versions of the aria.
